The 2014 has been a very good year in terms of technological advances : we could see larger iPhones , TVs with curved screen and better wearables . However, it seems that 2015 will be even better and the average Techradar has made a compilation with the best technologies to come in the next 365 days .
1. Battery improvements
One of the most important features of a device is its battery and autonomy that it can offer a user. Well, in 2015 not only could the hours that a terminal be on could increase, but there could also be an optimization in their weight (which would make the equipment lighter), or a higher loading speed.
In the latter case, Qnovo has developed a piece of software that monitors and adjusts the constant flow of energy that enters our phone when we are charging it. In this way, it allows our device to charge earlier. It even increases the useful life of an ordinary battery.
The company says this reduces the charging time by up to 50 percent . In addition, they ensure that it prolongs the life of the batteries, since it does not receive an amount of energy greater than what they really need . These improvements are supposed to be implemented in 2015.
By now, everyone is familiar with the Global Positioning System, better known as GPS . Well, as you already know, Europe has been developing its own location system , Galileo , which it plans to start to bear fruit in early 2015 , albeit to a limited extent.
Galileo is designed for multimodal users , in order to respond to the different needs of customers. Thanks to it, you will be able to obtain more precise information on time and positioning, among other benefits.
3. Virtual Reality
For many years we have been waiting for (and admiring) the virtues of virtual reality on wearable devices. As you may already know, although we do not have a specific date, the Oculus Rift will go on sale in 2015 for an approximate price of 350 euros . In the same way, Google Glass is also supposed to be presented to the general public next year.
4. MacBook Air Retina
Apple could begin mass production of its new MacBook Air in the next few weeks , specifically in early 2015 . The reason would be that the new low-power Intel Broadwell processors would be available by then, but we will still have to wait to see if this information becomes a reality .
5. Smart clothing
Samsung assured that 2014 had been the year of wearables , and that we cannot deny. Anyway, in 2015 new smart watches with various improvements will be released. For starters, the Apple Watch is expected to go on sale during the first months of the year. Likewise, we expect the big brands to show improvements in their portable devices . Among them, an optimization of autonomy, since there are many devices that can not last a day on.
6. Windows 10
Despite being released a few months ago, Windows 10 will not be available to the general public until spring 2015 . This version of Microsoft's operating system is expected to be a success. One of the keys to this new system will be the return of the start menu to the desktop . Of course, this new menu will include icons similar to those on the Windows 8 main screen .
