Dulce De Leche

We’ve drooled over it in ice cream and we love them in our Choco-Churro Donuts, so it was inevitable that the sweetened caramelized milk finally found its place in the dictionary.

Double-Dip

The best way to maximize your chip and guac-eating experience is to load up on the dip. That’s why we won’t blame you for taking your first bite and going back in for another scoop. (Though some of your more clean-conscious friends might not agree).

Detectorist

If you love searching for hidden treasures with your metal detector, you can now point to your exact title in Merriam-Webster.

 

Let’s check out the gadgets that helped us learn new things

The main I will mention is Drone

Drones

First of all, drones were around long before 2010, but this was the decade when they really took off, literally. Suddenly, they were under Christmas trees and in even in stockings. Now, a range of drones is available—from super high-tech models like the DJI Mavic Pro to the small, dinky spinners you can find on Amazon for $5.

Their prevalence proved to be a challenge for several industries. Drones have shut down airports and even halted firefighting efforts across the West. With great power comes great responsibility. Regulators are now tightening restrictions, which could make it more difficult to own and operate the flying machines.

Above all, From clicking pictures via drone camera to zipline drones have certainly changed our lives big time.

I even read the following awesome use of drone-

Robot bees by Walmart

Walmart is looking to revolutionize farming processes with the use of robotic alternatives to bees.

Furthermore, Taking the form of a multicopter – a type of aerial vehicle that flies using two or more rotating blades – the “bees” would use cameras and sensors to find the locations of crops where they would distribute pollen.

 

MantaDroid by National University of Singapore

Designed to be used for underwater surveillance and marine biodiversity studies, the MantaDroid mirrors the moves and looks of a mantra ray, to disguising it in aquatic surroundings.

It offers an inconspicuous alternative to conventional underwater vehicles

 

Zipline by Harvard graduates and the Rwandan Government

The world’s first commercial medical supplies drone delivery system, Zipline, is designed to deliver blood, vaccines, and other critical supplies to health workers in remote areas.

Also, Prompted by a mobile phone message, the drones deliver supplies via parachute within minutes; each can fly 500 deliveries in 24 hours, carrying up to 1.5 kilograms at a time

 

Drones for Agriculture

In simple terms, you can scan your crop, map the surface, deliver items and count animals using drones. Crop field scanning with compact multispectral imaging sensors.

 

To conclude, the era of drones has shifted from being merely a device used to take pictures to a device that will (hopefully) solve some of the gripping problems around the world surrounding food, safety, and transportation.

 

Likewise, Drones have now become a part of our day by day life. The device, as changed the way we look at our surroundings by giving an all-new angle for viewing. DJI’s Phantom, which first made its entry in 2013, is the best example for drones in modern society. (Source: Wikimedia Commons)
