It’s safe to conclude that technology is evolving super-fast. At an incredible pace. But that’s great news because, at the end of the day, precisely the latest inventions are going to allow us to make significant progress (in many ways) as a society.
What’s important to understand is the fact that technology isn’t influencing one industry or one area of our lives only, but in fact, so many. And certainly, one of the best “collaborations” was done between science and technology.
When these two join forces, spectacular things happen. And to show you that this conclusion is one hundred percent accurate, today we will put together a list of innovations that were developed by virtue of technology and science.
Superb Innovations That Will Blow Your Mind
Let’s Start With Genomics
Imagine employing something that is capable of analyzing and studying your DNA and at the same time, enhancing your health, helping you combat numerous illnesses and whatnot. That sounds pretty amazing, right?
And that’s exactly what Genomics is. Namely, it peruses on the makeup of DNAs, genes, their structure, mapping, and many other things. Its main goal is to find diseases or any other health-related issues that can (at some point) represent a problem.
Genomics is able to execute both non-technical and technical tasks. Technical tasks are all about analyzing, designing, and diagnostics, while non-technical ones are related to theoretical analysis and thorough research.
Moving On To Data Collection & Analysis Software
We are all witnesses of how our world is becoming shaped by data, meaning that precisely something like this is opening doors for creative and skilled people to analyze this data and make use of it.
But in order to properly analyze and gather any relevant information, both students and teachers need to rely on the tool that’s going to help them accomplish this. Therefore, it’s essential to pick the right software that is going to help educators keep their students engaged and involved, while at the same time, enabling students to learn in new ways. Luckily, the market is loaded with first-class tools that will help them excel in school.

Bioacoustics: Capturing The Sounds Of The Rainforest’s Wall
If you step outside in a natural environment and just close your eyes and pay attention to the sounds that surround you, you’ll get the opportunity to hear crickets “talking”, birds chirping and frogs croaking.
And those sounds are nothing but bioacoustics and they are not here only to brighten up your day and make you feel like you’re in a movie or fairytale, but they also present relevant data for conservationists and scientists.
In addition, bioacoustics is currently utilizing the entire scope of data, also known as the soundscape to measure biodiversity. Scientists use ultrasonic recorders and acoustic recorders in the forest so they can capture sounds between one and twenty-four kilohertz.
The ultrasonic recorders pick up sounds up to almost ninety-six kilohertz enabling people to collect data on insects and bats that vocalize on frequencies that humans cannot hear. Precisely these acoustics offer a rough estimate of biodiversity, helping researchers and scientists figure out if conservation activities are truly working.
The food industry will definitely be impacted by technology and science. Namely, as 3D printing technology evolves, various firms are already testing out food printing. Meat is being made in the lab without adding any growth hormones and antibiotics and could soon be available to many.
Colonization Of Other Planets
Since we’ve been destroying our wonderful planet for quite some time, maybe it’s time to give it a break and consider moving to another planet because, at some point, we are either going to completely destroy the earth or outgrow it.
If you share this opinion, then we’ve got some great news for you. Namely, according to some reports, scientists are working on colonizing other planets, so our beautiful planet can take a break from this centuries-long terror.
Microchips & Human Augmentation
With small chips, technology and biology are merging. What’s interesting is that thousands of Germans are already having a microchip under the skin to simplify everyday life. For instance, personal and medical data can be stored on these implants.
In terms of augmentation, many scientists and researchers are trying to uncover new ways to augment eyes and backs. One of the best examples is eSight which enables blind people to see again. We’ll see what they will come up with next!
There are a variety of different innovations that could be added here that represent a perfect combination of technology and science. However, today we decided to mention only these because they seemed like the most interesting ones.
