Among other things, three of the purposes of consumer electronics are to provide ourselves with greater entertainment, healthier bodies and minds, and a better quality of life. As we consider that, let us explore a few key tech trends regarding entertainment, health, and lifestyle. 

1. Entertainment: Globalized Gaming 

For those of us born in the early to mid-eighties, September 13th, 1985, will always be remembered as a date that revolutionized the video game industry. Of course, many don't actually recall the specific date but when told about the events that happened that day, most will certainly recognize it. In case you are still wondering what this is all about, let us get right to it. It was the day when Nintendo released Super Mario Brothers on the Nintendo Entertainment System or NES. 

The rest, as they say, is history. Since then, Nintendo has released more than 20 versions of the Italian plumber story on a wide variety of platforms including the Gameboy, the Nintendo 64, the Cube, the Wii, the Switch, and everything in between. Not only that, but other consumer electronics and video game companies like Sony, Sega, and Microsoft have followed suit. 

Today, Mario and Luigi, the twin brothers without a last name, are grandfathers, at least in age. But their legacy of multi-player, multi-level stories lives on, albeit on a global scale. With 5G Internet speeds and continuous technological development, gamers across the globe are building customized PCs online, logging into their Google accounts, downloading games such as PUBG, Fortnite Battle Royale, or Apex Legends, and embarking on a worldwide journey of adventure and limitless entertainment. 

2. Health: Intuitive Health And Fitness 

For reasons unknown, it is impossible for a doctor, psychologist, or any other healthcare physician to see his or her patient on time. No matter how busy he might be, how early you arrive at his office, or the number of times you have confirmed the appointment, chances are you will have to wait a minimum of 30 minutes before anything is done. 

This is simply an example of one of the many inconveniences that lie with seeing a medic face to face. There is also the matter of transportation time and cost, lack of availability of patient slots, and your own busy day-to-day schedule. 

Luckily, technology has brought with it enormous improvement and change. For instance, there are now plenty of personal, home medical tests you can take in your own time inside your bedroom. Common ones include HIV, allergies, cholesterol, and UTIs. In countries like Germany and a few others, you can even buy a covid-19 testing kit for yourself or your children at the local convenient store and take it privately in your house. 

And it doesn't stop there. There are also hundreds, perhaps even thousands, of intuitive health and fitness apps designed to provide you with a customized workout and nutritional program based on your gender, age, medical history, current physical condition, fitness goals and expectations, and time frame. 

3. Lifestyle: Interconnectivity And Smart Systems 

Almost a quarter into the 21st century, people are busier than at any other time in our history. There are several reasons for his. 

First, the global population is at an all-time high, creating extreme levels of competition among people, local communities and cities, and even entire nations. Second, we live in a world with high societal demands. We not only have to be diligent and responsible workers, but also good mothers and fathers, great friends, and involved community members. Finally, the global manufacturing of ample goods and services has generated a constant desire inside many of us to buy more things and use more services. As a result, we work harder and harder, longer and longer. 

The key to surviving in this accelerated lifestyle is to make things more convenient. If we can work at home instead of having to go to the office, have an important meeting while in the car, or control all our home appliances remotely, there is no telling how much valuable time we can save for other pertinent things in our lives or catch our breaths and have a few moments to relax. 

From a consumer electronics perspective, this entails smarter living places, autonomous vehicles, and interconnected systems always evolving to provide faster communication speeds, more features, and better accessibility. 

Tech Times

Three of the most important technology trends in entertainment, health, and lifestyle are globalized, inclusive gaming, personalized, independent health and fitness systems, and the advent of everything smart and the Internet of things. These tech trends continue to define many aspects of our lives, from how we entertain ourselves to how we take care of our bodies and make our lives more convenient.
