We live in a crazy world where there is no end to what we can do these days. But what makes these things possible is the advancement of technology that can aid, support, analyse and predict situations and circumstances. We now have a need to delve deeper into our history, dig deeper into the world, understand what is beyond the skies that we can see and create things and businesses that can help us advance firter. But that means that in some cases we have to work in hard environments. But what makes a harsh environment? For a person, that might be an environment that is difficult to withstand, maybe speed, heat, danger. A harsh environment might be a working place where things need to be created, but with sudden changes in temperature and exploration in some of the most difficult and hard to reach places it can be hard to withstand without the support and development of some of the technology we have available today. I wanted to share and celebrate some of the ways that technology can help us in some of the harshest environments that we might find ourselves in.
Waterproof technology, especially things like computers, have been around for some time now. It is actually useful in so many different ways, especially when it comes to working environments and also analysing harsh environments in the world. You can find waterproof computers in all areas of industry. You may find them on the production line where water is paramount to production of items we use each day. You might find them being used out to sea where oil rigs are mining for oil, or gas rigs making sure that we can have energy in our homes. Water counts for many harsh environment, be that in factories or in the natural world, and so it is understandable why this is a necessary from of technology that will only need to be advanced in the future.
There is so much wearable technology these days, and it can really help us personally when it comes to working in harsh environments. Someone who has to put themselves out there in very dangerous situations may need to have the use of wearable technology to monitor their health vitals. Watches and wrist straps can be used to monitor heart rates and blood pressures. Wearable technology might also come in handy in terms of GPS. Divers, for example, will wear such wearable technology to ensure that they can navigate where they are going or subsequently be found if ever needed.
Technology that can withstand high temperatures
We have this natural need to explore these days. To find out more about our environment and to also help us predict patterns for the future in terms of evolution and development. Temperature is hard to withstand for a person as well as any from of technology. But there are necessary cases where people and indeed tech needs to handle the heat, for example, when monitoring a volcano. One that may need to be monitored because of the unpredictability of eruption. Not being able to monitor the activity could mean that villages, towns and many people’s lives would be lost. But, that would mean that as a person and some for of technology needs to be around to help monitor activity levels. This is when the advancements of today are now there helping to save people rather than having to go along with the natural disasters that many had to face decades ago.
Technology that can be used in space
As much as we have a need to monitor environments on Earth, we also have a desire to monitor what is out there beyond what we can see in the sky. Space is a place that is full of wonder and mystery. Which is why space exploration has become high on the agenda for many countries all over the world. But, technology needs to be able to withstand the change of air pressure. People need to wear specific suits to protect them and monitor their levels, and the materials and technology behind space stations, spaceships and computer and software to monitor and capture activity needs to be enhanced.
Technology that can withstand distance
Finally, there is a need to be able to send information from one place to another, however, wires and cables are not always the easiest and most viable option. Wireless connections are now becoming more of the norm and enables people to send information in seconds from one place to another, no matter the distance.
I hope that this has made you more aware of when technology goes above and beyond.
