Wild innovations are coming in 2023 despite the economic downturn
#Wild #innovations #coming #economic #downturn Welcome to Alaska Green Light Blog, here is the new story we have for you today:
Call up the Jetson’s theme song. The future is just around the corner.
Some wild new innovations like flying cars, kids technology and even more robots will be unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. Last year’s hyped focus on VR, AR, and the Metaverse feels like it’s falling flat this year for more livable gear in the real world.
Electric vehicles will experience tremendous growth in 2023
Dodge introduces the Ram 1500 Revolution, a battery electric vehicle concept. From the predictable expansion of major car brands into EV territory, we’ll see innovative EV technologies make their way onto our old bike, to the extreme version of a flying machine aiming for FAA and NTSB certification.

5 COMMON FAULTS THAT ARE SLOWING DOWN YOUR WI-FI
The four-seater drive-and-fly vehicle ASKA A5 may not hit the streets or the skies this year, but its fully functional electric vertical take-off and landing concept is closer to reality than expected.
Bigger, thinner and better best describes the next generation of TVs coming this year. For 2023 we will see TVs with better wireless capabilities, easier-to-use interfaces inside, and a new manufacturer with a unique wireless big screen. The moment one of these is announced to be hitting retail stores is the perfect time for the best price on last year’s smart TV.

Startup TV company Displace is planning a lightweight, battery-powered 55-inch wireless TV that sticks to a surface without any mounting hardware. Displace describes how this £20 TV uses proprietary vacuum suction technology and can be combined into a giant multi-panel TV display. Reservations for sets will be accepted when available in late 2023.
Healthier home technology
We see smarter ways home technology can impact your health and well-being. Look for more passive health tracking in your bathroom, where you’ll never have to step foot on a scale again. The better health-related technologies work closely together, providing more meaningful information that you and your doctor can use to stay healthy.
5 APPS TO HELP YOU KEEP YOUR NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTIONS
I’ve been keeping an eye on how all these healthcare companies keep and record our data. With many of these health monitoring devices, there is a risk of your sensitive and personal health data falling into the wrong hands.
Child standard for all our smart devices
Imagine if your Amazon Alexa, Google Home and Apple’s Siri could talk to each other. A protocol called Matter that aims to enable this kind of love fest between smart devices is becoming a reality. The Connectivity Standards Alliance, which is behind an attempt to standardize interoperability so everything works seamlessly together, says it also aims to improve the security of smart devices by validating credentials with blockchain technology.
Ultimately, moving from home devices that require the less secure cloud to locally controlled connected devices can actually help protect your personal information more effectively.

A NEW INNOVATION DELIVERS PERFECTLY FITTING CLOTHES
It hasn’t completely disappeared. I still see startups with meta-focused inventions. One of them lets you shut out the rest of the world with a scented sensory accessory attached to a VR headset.
The combination of the two mimics the great outdoors by smelling like you are out in nature.

I have an idea. Take off the VR headset, go into nature and take a deep breath of the real outside itself. No headset or scent technician is required.
Sometimes I wish I had a woodchopper for some of the tech that brings us back. Think VR meta tech has gone too far? Or not far enough?
