As the world emerges from lockdown, we’re going to be looking at a lot of things in new ways. Aspects of the world we knew are likely to change forever. This pandemic has made us realize that we need to evolve now otherwise we may not be able to survive. This Pandemic has made it clear that without technological advancement human race cannot survive. Now is the time to think bigger and better, there has never been a better time for technological companies to get on board with new projects. In this article, we will discuss technological business opportunities after the pandemic.
We all are aware that the use of plastic is a major problem. It was made to last longer and that’s exactly what it has done. The problem is that we use it for a million different reasons – we can’t just stop using them all. We need an alternative such as cellulose Nanocrystals. CNC’s can be used to develop highly flexible products, these products are suitable for use in electronics, packaging, and dry food. The most amazing thing about cellulose nanocrystals is that we can easily dissolve them in water and they will produce no harmful chemicals or by-products.
If you are thinking that this pandemic is very likely to be the last than you are miss informed. Dangerous pathogens are evolving continuously, who knows when the new virus hits the world? Even the most remarkable scientists and medical teams can’t hold them all. We can only fight these dangerous pathogens by evolving – artificially.
Nanomedicine isn’t only sensational because it can potentially help to perform non-invasive surgery, but it can also be helpful in generating antibodies that work much better and quicker than a vaccination.
Meaning that we may not have to face lockdown ever again.
Edible Printed Food
In 2005, Simpson’s episode called “Future Drama” first showed us a glimpse of printed food. In that episode, Bart Simpson’s wife Lisa Simpson transforms a 2D photo into edible 3D Cake.
Now with advancements in 3D printing technology, there is all sort of possibilities, technicians are still experimenting on it. Given the right ingredients, a 3D printer can assemble all sorts of food. Presently, they’re good for creating the layered and sculpted foods that are very difficult for a human to make. But as this technology advances, all sorts of possibilities are emerging.
US Space advisor Dylan Taylor, in his recent tweet he expects space tourism to be taking place before the end of this decade. You may think, how? This can be made possible by using space planes instead of rockets, rocket trips are costly, uncomfortable and they damage the environment. Whereas space planes are cheaper, comfortable and they cause less damage to the environment than rockets.
Space rockets can also be used to transfer materials into space, enabling the construction of space hotels, where people can spend some quality time looking down at the peaceful Earth.
The Tangible Internet
This pandemic has made us hungry for a human touch, if we follow the SOP’s we can not even sit near to our loved ones. In this hard time, a simple hug from a loved one takes away all your worries. What if you could hug your loved ones through haptic technologies? The coming generation of haptics involves lightweight wearable suits, allowing you to feel the pressure that mimics physical contact. Using this technology, you can feel your loved ones, hold their hands even if they live in other countries.
Drones & Robots
Drones & Robots have helped people a lot during this pandemic. Medicine companies have used drones & robots to deliver medicines and support to people quarantined or practicing social distancing. In short, COVID-19 has shown us that we need to invest more in these robots & drones. Pathogens can’t hurt robots & drones so, they will be useful if a new wave of coronavirus or any new pathogens hits the world.
These were some of the technological business opportunities after the pandemic that I had in mind. Please share your thoughts. Thanks for reading.
