Transcript of Past, Current and Emerging Technologies

Lasts 3 times longer than any other heated gloves in the market.
Auto adjustment of temperature.
Can be rechargeable.
Instead of using wires it uses flat, flexible, conductive traces to transmit power.
It is light.

Not suitable to wear during hot days.
Charging 1 hour is equal to 1 hour of battery life.
More expensive than other heat gloves.

Cannot be used if not charged.
Useless for anyone who lives in tropical areas. Past, Current and
Emerging Technologies Contributions Made By Important People Past Current Smartphones:Smartphones, like today's iPhones are becoming more and more popular because of its convenience and its many functions built it to it. These phones contain a touch screen and a large variety of useful "apps".
Eye Tracking Technology:are pairs of glasses which when worn, measures the eye's point of gaze.This type of technology is heavily used in usability tests.
Computer Aided Design:is a technology used by engineers and designers for creating 3D product designs.
Amazon Kindle:is an electronic pad specially designed for reading. Future The Crawl: is designed to replace the insulated truck-mounted booms currently used to raise linespeople up to overhead power lines.The platform consists of a platform which clamps onto the telegraph pole. By using an air compression motor, it allows the user to move up or down.
Chaval's Heated Gloves:These gloves are designed to help people who are in freezing cold temperatures by providing warmth to the hands. In this complex pair of glove, it contains built in alphaHEAT technology which automatically adjusts temperature by itself. Ever since humans have been living on this planet, magnificent things have happened ranging from something as simple as cooking to sending people to space. However, all these special events have something in common and it is the link to technology. Technology is what makes our world improve for the better or worse. Further on, we would see the many great people and changes in technology. 1976 (VHS Format): was the predominant video format used for recording and was invented by JVC.
1877 (Phonograph): is a device introduced in 1877 for the recording and reproduction of sound recordings. It consisted of a circular disk and a stylus which traced the engraved wavy lines to reproduce sounds.
1876 (Analog Telephone): was a form of communication device that had its handset connect to the dialing box with a wire. Instead of pushing the number buttons, it had a circular disk which was rotated.
1828 (The Telegraph): was a device which sent electrical sparks through chemically treated paper tape to burn dots and dashes. Advantages: These VHS tapes cost a lot less than DVDs.
Because of the plastic casing around the tape, it
makes it more stronger to handle physical damage.

Do not have long stranding video quality of a DVD.

VHS tapes are hard to find these days due to the
increase of popularity of the Internet and CDs.
Finding a VHS player in stores are often rare. Advantages:
Produced high quality music at that time.

Required great care on the discs as any scratches would affect the music being played.
Not everyone could have afforded for it back in those days.

The phonograph does not work without the special circular disk and vica verca. Advantages:
Could be used to communicate.
Easy to use as it doesn't have many functions to it.

Lack of functions.
Lack of mobility because of wires.
More time consuming to dial a number.

Usually, only one in the house meaning not everyone can use it at the same time. Advantages:
Could be used to send information across great distances
Helped created "Morse Code".

Its prohibitive cost, due to having to manufacture and string-up the multiple wire circuits it employed, as opposed to the single wire (with ground return) used by later telegraphs.

Not everyone had one of these and so if they had to use one, they went to the local area where there was one. Advantages:
Allows you to stay connected with the latest news and gossip.
Allows users to stay in touch with friends that don't have your number by going on emails and etc.
Has the potential to do a lot more things than ordinary phones and provides you with more fun.

Keyboard is small and hard to type in letters or numbers especially for people with bigger fingers.
A lot to learn for people who are beginners.
Costs more.

Without 3G or Wifi connection, some of the apps can not be used. Advantages:
Can help companies determine where the user's interest is focused on automatically by using these glasses during usability tests of their product.
Very quick and easy to set up.
Real-time feedback of eye movement data.

Not very useful for everyday normal
It is expensive.
Some users cannot work with the equipment for example, people with long eyelashes.

These glasses cannot track the users peripheral vision. Advantages:
Gives designers a 3D preview of the product before creating the actual product.
It is very precise.
The model displayed on this program is in scale.
Has a smaller file than bitmapped images.

Can be very expensive.
If the product is not checked properly, the product created can go very wrong.
May be very hard to use.

It is not manual.
Require skills and knowledge. Advantages:
Ability to store thousands of books.
Books are cheap.
The device is light reads like paper with no glare.

The Kindle's battery doesn't last very long especially when 3G or Wifi is on.
You do not own the books after you have bought them.
Can only buy books from Amazon.

On a kindle, you have to pay before placing your content on the Kindle. Advantages:
Reduces the need of using our current machine, which is more bulky and uses a lot more space.
A lot more easier for the user to do his job as it allows him or her to rotate around and move up/down the pole.
It is safer given that there are leg and shoulder harnesses.
More comfortable with the perch seat it contains.

When the weather is bad, it is recommended not to use it.
Looks less stable.

This technology is only suitable for these telegraph pole repairers and require someone who isn't scared of heights. The Crawl Click me! Heat Gloves Click me! Timeline of Technological Innovations and Contributions 1608 Telescope created by Hans Lippershey 1657 Pendulum clock invented by Christiaan Huygens Thomas Newcomen created the first steam engine for pumping water. 1705 Multi-spool spinning frame invented by James Hargreaves 1767 Miner's safety lamp invent by Humphry Davy 1816 Revolving machine gun invented by Richard J. Gatling. 1862 James Smathers develops the first electric type writer. 1919 Computer mouse invented by Douglas Engelbart 1963 2011 Siri invented by Dag Kittlaus. The first mathematical calculator was invented by him, Charles Babbage to do simple things such as multiplication, division, addition and subtraction. Herman Hollerith invented the first punch card tabulation machine to store data. Lovelace was the first computer programmer. She understood how the computer worked and even designed a new way for it to work. John Napier invented a calculation instrument called Napier's bones. John Napier was also a mathematician and created the decimal point. He invented the Pascal's Triangle which was a triangular array of the binomial coefficients in a triangle. Bill Gates was the founder of Microsoft Windows. Steve Jobs was the inventor for the Apple, iPad,iPod, iPhone, iMac, iTunes and etc. Alcorn invented a new type of x-ray spectrometer which determines what elements are present, and how abundant they are, on the very surface of Mercury. Andrew Alford invented the localizer antenna system for radio navigation systems. Randice-Lisa Altschul invented the world's first disposable cell phone. By Anson Lee
