The End of the World: The Beginning of a New Era in Technology

/ Wednesday, 12 December 2012 / Published in News

These days, the infamous chorus of “It’s The End of The World as We Know It (And I Feel Fine)” plays through the minds of many. With the day pegged by the Mayan calendar to be the end of the world looming closer, most people, even if not end-of-the-worlders, are at least curious to see if there will be any changes at all.

There are those who believe that December 21, 2012 is doomsday, that predictions for world destruction will prove true. After all, anybody living on this planet knows that natural disasters have been escalating since the turn of the century, the last time people became wrought with anxiety that it might all end. But it didn’t happen then. Will it happen now?

The new-age school of thought believes that the world will not be destroyed, but that instead we will come into a new age of enlightenment and world peace where we will possibly even rise to higher forms of consciousness.

Science says that there is an asteroid that is heading closer to Earth, but unlike the doomsdayers who believe it will collide with the earth on the day the Mayan calendar mysteriously runs out, NASA claims collision is only a possibility and that whether it hits Earth or passes, the event will not occur until April 13th, 2036.

However, another scientific theory is of a galactic alignment, where the sun and the earth will line up with a black hole at the center of the Milky Way, creating a gravitational pull upon the earth that will cause catastrophic natural disasters that could, possibly, end the earth in 2012.

While there may be some truth to any of the theories floating around, most people do not believe that “some” truth or possibilities equate the wiping out of the entire planet. Many people are recognizing major shifts in the world though, whether they be environmental or technological. And, in the world of technology, it just may be the end of the world as we know it…

… and the end of the age of smartphones as technology continues to evolve at lightning speed. Get ready to see more and more people walking around with hands-free, voice activated, augmented reality head-mounted displays (HMD), which essentially are glasses with built-in computers, such as the up and coming Google Glass, to be on the market as soon as 2014. Other companies such as Jawbone have similar technology in headsets, while still others are wrapping it around your wrist into watches like the E-Paper ones by Pebble.

It truly may be the end of the world as we know it as the beginning of a new era in technology will leave the smartphone outdated and take us into a future that we have only envisioned until now. The countdown continues, currently at 7 days, 17 hours left until…
