Fiction into Reality – Movie Magic now Everyday Technology

Sunday, October 29th, 2017

Movies tend to be the window into the future. Many screen writers and movie special effects staff come together to spin their imaginations together. Sometimes they couple together innovative technology that is currently being used, then fill in the rest with their imagination. By doing this, movies that have depicted futuristic technology have been able to capture audiences. Many watch the movie and wonder how life would be if the technology they see in the movies did exist. Many think that one day, humanity will get to the stage they see in the movie and then life will be completely different. Well IT GURUS OF ATLANTA is here to tell you that many gadgets and technologies used in a lot of movies done in the past are currently being used.  Its surprising how technology creeps into society and steadily becomes a part of our everyday living without anyone batting an eye or realizing just how significant a change this technology is doing.

Star Trek Replicator – 3D Printer

Many Star Trek fans know the infamous replicator which can produce any food or material that the mind can conceive if it is given instructions. This device was found in the cabin quarters of the crew members and most replicated food, but sometimes could replicate different objects such as a glass, plate, or a hand-held device.  In the movie and series, fans were left with the thought of being able to use a replicator. Now in 2017, we are almost there. We currently have 3D printers. Just in case you have been in a cave for the past 3-5 years, a 3D printer can create a replication of almost anything once it receives the image or description of what the object is supposed to be. 3D printers have varied functions and functionality that some can create buildings, objects, or even food. The materials that the 3D printer uses is critical to its function and what its capabilities are. While we do have a long way to go before we have a full-fledged “replicator” from Star Trek, we are very close to where this once thought concept is now a part of our reality.

Star Trek PADD – iPad

The Star Trek PADD was used in the early version of Star Trek in the days of William Shatner.  The PADD was used by the crew members to touch, type, and input data into a single pane hand-held computer with a flat pane.  This device during the 70s was the equivalent of imagination and considered another device that no one during that era would live to see. Well that was before Apple came out with the iPad. The iPad came into homes on January 27th, 2010 and introduced by Steve Jobs at Apple. The iPad literally blew the minds of many technology enthusiasts because the iPhone could move from just a mobile device to a full-fledged flat, hand-held device that could do the same capabilities as in Star Trek.  The wave came in of iPads and not much correlated the technology with Star Trek to get the euphoric feeling.

Star Trek Medical Tricorder – Scanadu Scout

All Trekkies know about this device as during any medical emergency in Star Trek, the medical team responded by first using a “Tricorder”. This device can get the vitals of the patient in a matter of seconds by pointing the device, pressing a button, then the device would read the vitals quickly.  Medically, no one thought this device was anywhere near to being created.  That was until the invention and introduction of Scanadu Scout. If you haven’t heard of this device yet, then now is the time to make that introduction. The Scanadu Scout is a lightweight version of the Star Trak Tricorder which can give a person’s vitals in a matter of seconds by simply pressing the device gently against the forehead, it can bring back immediate readings. Right now, the device after its initial launch, has been disapproved by the FDA, they are currently ramping up to ensure their next round of tests surpass the FDA guidelines.

Star Trek Communicator – Flip Phones – Smartphones

The Star Trek communicator which was a device very similar looking with the flip capacity of what we grew to know as the “flip phone”. That technology quickly came into society and as soon as it came in, it got modified and was quickly pushed out. Today the flip phone is an antique that is no longer supported by most networks and is replaced by the smartphone. The smartphone is literally a small computer in the palm of your hand that can compute, communicate, and surf the internet from literally anywhere. It is amazing to see that years ago the Star Trek Communicator was deemed to be so futuristic and today we have not only implemented that technology, but surpassed it as well.

Technology is clearly a part of our society and is key to the future of humanity. As we evolve, so does the technology we use. Services, hardware, and even virtualization which is the marriage of hardware and software shows the infinite possibilities to come. IT GURUS OF ATLANTA is a technology based firm which was created in this technological error and prides itself as a company that is constantly evolving with this innovation embraces the changes.

Tying Technology with Service

Wednesday, September 27th, 2017

Technology is a constantly changing and evolving concept which due to the efforts of today’s society, has become the mainstream for how we all communicate, view the world, and how we envision the future. This science of technology is a concept that was first started with the invention of the first wheel all the way up to us putting a man on the moon. The mother of invention is the thoughts and dreams that people begin to put into research and development of their ideas to make them tangible. A few of the more comprehensive results of technology is the cloud which are technically data centers spread across the world which help to reduce on the cost of hardware being purchased by companies and the overhead of having to pay administrators to maintain the equipment. This new feature which companies and government agencies alike are moving toward is changing the technological landscape.

The services which were once thought of as mundane or no respect that was given to Information Technology are no longer the overlooked or mediocre jobs. Information Technology professionals are now some of the most highly paid individuals that not only maintain a company, but also push that company ahead in an everchanging market. From software architects, engineers, project managers, and even down to the help desk person all play a part in ensuring that a company that has these individuals can compete against other organizations. From answering simple questions to creating designs to implement, all levels of Information Technology all have a process to get the product or service completed.

Many looked back to the 80’s or 90’s to see how the world viewed technology as a video tape player or a Walkman and a television set. The computer which was once depicted to be used by nerds with pocket protectors are now the Wolves of Wall Street or the Steve Jobs of the world. Getting in to where society is headed at an early stage is always an opportunity which knocks for everyone that is interested in Information Technology.  The most beautiful aspect of Information Technology is that even with all the inventions and progress that has been made, there is still plenty more to go. By saying that there is plenty more to go, it simply means that the possibilities of technology today are endless.

A recap on just a few months this year are the unveiling of the iPhone X which is taking the Apple community by storm and said to change the way how users interact with their smartphone for years to come. Another new revelation is the first commercial flight to the moon will take place in 2018 through Space X which is owned by Elon Musk. Elon Musk which coincidentally is the CEO for Tesla, America’s number electric car producer, oversees the Hyperloop which is on the verge of being put into mainstream.  There are so many inventions and advancements that are taking place by the moment that these are some very interesting times to be in.

Successful Teleportation done by Chinese Scientists – More to come! No longer Science Fiction!

Wednesday, August 9th, 2017

Many people look at technology in movies as a window into the future through the imagination of the mind. The mind believes that whatever it can conceive, that it can achieve. This is true in many aspects. We at IT GURUS OF ATLANTA like to look at the world as not just one-sided or 4 dimensional, but in a realistic spectrum of changes and events that are triggered by the way how we think and the decisions we make to achieve our goals. One of the ways that companies and innovators change the world is coming up with new technology that not mystifies the mind, but also captures the imagination.

 

One technology commonly depicted was in Star Trek where many were shocked in early 70’s to see devices which could teleport individuals from one point in the ship to another part, other ships, and even down the surface of other planets. A far stretch from the imagination this thought was years ago when the first episode of Star Trek aired and even after movies depicting this same technology appeared repeatedly. Well, the time for imagination to reach reality has finally come.

Scientists of two teams conducted their first teleportation successfully from inside a laboratory to just outside the vicinity of the laboratory proving that this ability to teleport is feasible.  Since then teams of scientists have been trying to get this technology mastered, but have had much difficulty in achieving this goal. That is until a team of Chinese scientists completed their first successful teleportation of an object into a satellite orbiting Earth which was 311 miles away.

 

To be more specific, the Chinese team beamed a photon in the photo receiver of a highly sensitive satellite called Micius. A photon is a representation of what a fax does with a piece of paper and the other machine receives it on the other end. In order for the data to be replicated, it needs to read the data, translate it, and then it transfers the state of the object rather than the physical object. This is the same that is done with teleportation. The photon is that transmitted quantum of light or other electromagnetic radiation. This photon is the first steps of transmission of data from one surface to another and it was received successfully.

Simply put, data can now be teleported instead of via wireless, radio, or other conventional frequencies. This completely makes cords and the limitations of data transmissions obsolete. The next phase in the process is sending physical beings. Sending physical beings is a bit more complicated as breaking down a beings physical chemistry, converting it into data, then the receiver having the ability to recompose the data and piecing the physical being back with all the data intact is a task within itself. However, the first phases of this technology are now underway and sending an object as a photon, then receiving it 311 miles away shows that we are on the right path. This not only changes the way how we transmit data today in the modern world, but also gives light into how could potentially travel in years to come.
