4 Converging (Enabling) Technologies

Four converging tech areas enable the revolution. I write about this in detail (both the technologies and business opportunities) in my next book BOLD (coming out February 2015). See if this makes sense…
  1. Sensors: The sensors that cost you $10 today would have been military secrets costing you tens of thousands of dollars 20 years ago. Sensors that listen, look, feel and navigate are plummeting in cost, size, weight and power consumption, thanks to the smartphone revolution.
  2. Infinite Computing: Your mobile phone processor is a supercomputer from 20 years ago. Better yet, it’s connected to the cloud and enables near-infinite computing. Combined with sensors, this allows robots to have situational awareness and "comprehend" contextual information in real time.
  3. 3D Printed Parts: Smart design software and 3D printing technologies are allowing entrepreneurs to rapidly design, prototype and build novel robots and test them in the market before committing to production.
  4. Open-Source Movement: There is a massive online open-source movement sharing designs, posting software updates, answering questions and more. Whatever expertise you need you can find online, 24x7, for free. Post a question, get it answered.
