What Are Some of the Latest Inventions in Computing?

There have been many leaps and bounds made as of February 2015; one of the latest inventions in computing is the Microsoft HoloLens goggles. Microsoft HoloLens is the first holographic computer and will use Windows Operating System 10. The hologram technology that the HoloLens provides will change how we interact with the world around us.

There is also a product called Iris, which is a globe-shaped device that acts as a central point for controlling electricity, thermostats, door locks and other electrical processes in the home using smartphone technology. The system can be set up to alert the home owner of visitors or people coming home.

In mid 2014, IBM created a computer chip that duplicates the way the brain processes things. The chip is called TrueNorth. The chip uses only 70 milliwatts of energy, but has almost 5.5 billion transistors. This chip still has a long way to go before it is utilized on a wide scale. Another advancement in 2012 was a computer program that allowed a pill to be identified in 13.5 seconds from a database that had 18,000 different types of pills. In December of 2013, Microsoft came out with a program called Telepathwords, which predicts what will be typed next. Telepathwords helps the user create a strong password to prevent being hacked.
