Technology That Will Change PCs of 2015

With cellphones and all other latest devices getting slimmer and more interactive, why should PCs stay behind? The technology that will be used in 2015 will completely transform PCs. Hardware developers took inspiration from gaming consoles, mobile devices and even 3D printers to bring innovation in laptops and desktops. Let’s have a look at the technologies which will be used in future PCs.

Wireless Chargingwireless_charging

Charging has always remained an obstacle in our way of uninterrupted entertainment. But with drastic changes made by latest technology, our problem is also about to be solved. Intel is planning to make wireless chargers. You will just keep a laptop on table and it will start charging. Intel wants to make wireless chargers as common as a Wi-Fi signals, so people can easily find them in cafes restaurants, airports and other such public places. The first laptop with wireless charging is expected to come this year.

Creative Desktopscreative-desktops

Desktop PCs started with a dull white box and now has become a hub of creativity and productivity. Desktop PCs these days include technologies like depth-sensing cameras and 3D printing. In future we will be using devices like HP’s sprout. It looks like a normal all-in-one PC, but packs the latest imaging and collaboration technology. It features a Touch Mat which can be used for dual-purpose as images can be scanned and also manipulated on it. In future PCs will come with virtual keyboards as they will be given more priority over regular keyboards.

Biometric Sensorsbiometric-sensors

By the end of this year, Intel will be introducing a software which will enable users to log on to a website using biometric system. It will be used for two purposes, authentication as biometric authentication is relatively secure and more reliable plus the users will not have to remember dozens of passwords. Apple is already using this technology in authorizing credit card payments and Intel is planning to bring it in PCs.

Interactive Computersinteractive-computers

Computers are expected to become more perceptual and more interactive this year. With a combination of gesture, voice and visual recognition technologies being installed, PCs will change completely. The 2D cameras will be replaced by Intel’s RealSense 3D cameras which will identify objects and be able to measure distance between the objects. PC gaming will also become hands free with camera’s Kinect-like gesture recognition capabilities. Intel is also planning to combine visual, voice and sound input to recognize human moods and reading habits.

Thinner, Faster and Lighterthinner-faster-lighter-laptops

Key Features of Windows 10

windows-10Finally the long awaited new version of Windows is almost here. Instead of rumored Windows 9, Microsoft is releasing Windows 10.

Start Menu Returns

Microsoft tried to convince its users that Metro UI was equally good for keyboard and mouse, but they failed in convincing people, that’s why Microsoft has taken a complete U turn in Windows 10. It was rumored that Windows 10 will have a start button and now the rumor has been confirmed. Windows 10 shows us a start menu in bottom left of the desktop like previous versions of Windows. It also has some of the touch of Windows 8.1, right side of the menu can be seen with Metro-like live tiles. However it gives you the liberty to customize it like Windows 7.

Task View

Multi-tasking can be done more efficiently in Windows 10. It gives you a new task view button (Alt-Tab) that would show the task view interface meant for improving multi-tasking. You will see something similar to stacked cards as you see on hitting the windows tab. Now you get a refined view while gong by the images.

Virtual Desktop

Microsoft has added a virtual desktops feature in Windows 10 especially for the enterprise and power users. It lets you switch between multiple desktops according to your convenience. It is currently present as a third party Windows tool but in Windows 10 it will be a built in feature.

Universal Apps

You can finally have Universal app model in Windows 10. Windows Universal apps actually combine all your apps so they can run on all Windows devices including phone and tablets. All apps will be under one store whereas Windows 10 will also support older stores.

Metro Apps

Microsoft is no more forcing you to run Metro apps on your computer but you can use them in Windows according to your choice. These apps come with an icon for more options, just like what we saw in the charms. This feature shows that Microsoft is trying to fill the gap between desktop and Metro UI.

Continuum

It is one of the best feature Windows 10 is offering us. It is designed for Microsoft’s 2 in 1 devices that help to automatically change the mode if the device detects no keyboard is attached. Actually the news has it that a back touch button appears to help you navigate in case the keyboard is removed.

Snap

Windows 10 is also introducing an improved Snap function. It allows windows to be tiled horizontally as well as vertically. The new Snap feature works according to your preference and requirement depending whether you want to snap Windows into new screens or tile Windows.

Easy Shut Down

Windows 8 users have not been given the convenience of easy shut down, they have to navigate through Charms, log off, and then shut down the computer. But Windows 10 takes us back to the era where you could easily shut down your computer. Now, you can simply press Alt+F4 while viewing the desktop and choose from options including shut down from the drop menu.
