Our specialist team like to keep a keen eye on the latest technological innovations. Take a look at what’s caught our eye this month, with our five tech faves for March.
Transforming Web Banners Into Music
Web banners can be a tad infuriating, to say the least. A recent collaboration between AIAIAI and the Danish duo Kenton Slash Demon, is set to change that. Now web users can transform internet banners into music thanks to the launch of a new “interactive music universe.”
Human Skin Printing Technology
Scientists have developed new technology which can print human skin. The technology enables machines to print layers of human skin cells. Thus enabling medical professionals to treat burns and open wounds significantly faster than has ever been possible.
Smartphones are becoming increasingly more sophisticated and capable of doing virtually anything we ask them to. The likelihood of smartphones doubling up as an ECG machine designed to detect serious heart conditions, therefore, doesn’t sound implausible.
Researchers at the University at Edinburgh and NHS Lothian have been conducting trials on the device. It is claimed to be ten-times more effective at diagnosing heart rhythm problems than standard tests. Anything that has the potential to save lives, we’re a fan of.
A Robot Inspired By Climbing Trees
Now this one might be on the wacky side, but it certainly made us read it twice! A research group at Tel Aviv University are developing a low-mass, low-volume robot with advanced capability. Not just your average robot, it is capable of negotiating voids, anchoring itself and climbing.
Subsequently, the tree-climbing robot will help overcome one of the most complex challenges of modern robotics – moving coherently in difficult conditions and unpredictable terrain.
A tree-climbing robot contrasts to more conventional robots presents endless possibilities for forestry and environmental investigations.
One of the most anticipated technologies of the year and one that our team is most excited about, is 5G, the next generation of wireless.
The network is believed to be as much as ten times faster than broadband and a “quantum leap” from 4G.
In 2018 we saw a slice of 5G action when a home broadband service incorporating the technology was launched by Verizon.
Hot on Verizon’s heels in the race to adopt 5G was AT&T, bringing 5G services to a dozen cities. Great news for the US, of course! We can’t wait for it to come to the UK.
2019 is poised to make 5G more widespread with the launch of several smartphones capable of running on the network.
In the fast-paced world of recruitment, our team is especially excited about new tech that promises to make life easier for our clients and candidates. Therefore, we’re always on the lookout for new advances in technology which may impact on our world.
