5 Technologies That Are Changing the World

Entrepreneurship is about innovation, and nowhere do we see advancement more exciting than in the intersection of entrepreneurship and technology.

With the evolution of technology always in progress, new technologies are accelerating rapidly.

5 Technologies That Are Changing the World

Sometimes the growth of technology seems daunting and uncontrollable, but these five technologies are changing the world for the better!

1. X-Rays

Most people are familiar with X-rays in medical and dental settings. They allow for accurate diagnoses, helping patients get the medical attention they need.

While this is common knowledge, the range of X-ray technology at Maven Imaging illustrates how beneficial and exciting X-ray technology can be, with uses in veterinary, chiropractic, podiatry, and orthopedic specialties. 

Take the portable X-ray machine, for example. It has excellent benefits, such as cutting down costs and eliminating waits. It’s a great boon to healthcare systems already overwhelmed by extensive wait times. Plus, it’s also easy to use. 

This technology has significant applications in war zones or accidents, where determining injury as soon as possible is vital.

2. Submarines

When you consider that 80% of the ocean remains unexplored or even seen by humans, it’s easy to understand why submarines are a source of excitement. 

Consider the Triton Submarines. These submarines have explored areas such as the Great Barrier Reef in Australia. A Triton Submarine was used in the popular BBC series ‘Blue Planet II’ to complete the world’s deepest dive. 

3. Rockets

Rockets have always been an exciting technology that changes our understanding of the universe. NASA’s Artemis Mission is no exception. 

The exploration of the moon will provide greater knowledge and insight, and NASA has committed to making this mission the platform for the first woman and person of color to land on the moon, inspiring the next generation.

Technology Changing the World

4. Geothermal Energy

The Hellisheidi Geothermal Power Plant, based in Iceland, is one of the biggest in the world. The technology behind geothermal technology uses energy generated from the Earth. And most importantly, it’s renewable. 

Geothermal power facilities, like the Hellisheidi Plant, generate 25% of Iceland’s total electricity production. That means a quarter of Iceland’s energy is clean, renewable, and avoids environmental damage. Should that percentage increase, or other countries choose to harness geothermal energy, they’ll be less need for fossil fuels, resulting in a more stable environment. 

5. Non-Plastic Cling Film 

In the fight against plastic, a couple in Australia have found a way to utilize natural resources, combined with advanced technology, to change the properties of cling film. 

Cling film is one type of plastic you can’t recycle, so it will end up in landfill sites. When those plastics break down, toxic particles enter the soil and water, which either we ingest or animals do. 

Final Thoughts

New technologies that change the world for the better are worth celebrating. By discovering what exciting new technologies are out there, you and your business can find opportunities to support, champion, or even get involved in the projects that are changing the world.
