It’s impossible to stay competitive and successful without knowing how to use modern technologies and the ability to leverage the potential of various innovations. Below are some techs that are predicted to dominate the digital landscape in the near future.
In a decentralized metaverse, blockchain technology would be ideal for facilitating quick and secure digital transactions. Even though blockchain came into existence with Bitcoin, it has a far-reaching potential outside of cryptocurrency. Basically, blockchain can serve as a shared database that allows multiple parties to access data and verify it in real-time.

Brain-computer interfaces would allow us to control avatars, various objects, and digital transactions with our brain signals. This technology is expected to gain an initial foothold in video games and workforce productivity. BCI won’t play a major part in the early years of the Metaverse.
However, according to experts from SirinSoftware, the company that specializes in AI and IoT software development, by the mid-2030s, some early adopters might begin using BCI to connect to their new cortexes, according to experts. Several companies are already developing brain-computer interfaces. Neurolink, NextMind, and Neurable are among the most notable players in this new yet very promising industry.
The new digital reality we live in requires extremely high Internet speeds, high bandwidth, and low latency, especially when a user enters a vast virtual reality world with highly detailed textures and unbelievably high polygon counts.
5G enables impressive frequencies at the millimeter-wave spectrum, which opens up multiple possibilities like VR experiences that include the sense of touch, and AR experiences that let visitors have in-depth conversations with AI characters in real-time.
Eventually, 6G is predicted to completely replace its 5G predecessor. For the time being, 6G cannot be considered a functional technology yet.
Still, several countries have already launched research initiatives. Some experts estimate that it could be 100 times faster than 5G, which equates to 1TB per second. At that speed, you can download approximately 220 hours of Netflix movies in just about 1.5 seconds.
According to a white paper issued by NTT DOCOMO, 6G will make it possible for cyberspace to support human thought and action in real-time through wearable devices and micro-devices mounted on a human body. Sensory interfaces would feel and look just like real life.
With Web 1.0, content creators were scarce, with the vast majority of users simply acting as content consumers. For the most part, we’re currently in the Web 2.0 era, which launched the “Web as a Platform” era, where software applications are built on the web as opposed to desktop computers.
This enabled masses of users to participate in content creation on social networks, blogs, sharing websites, and more. However, Web 2.0 greatly empowers centralized tech giants like Amazon, Google, and Apply and also enables surveillance and exploitive advertising.
One of Web 3.0’s primary advantages is the ability to prepare a more fertile ground for a decentralized blockchain protocol, which would let individuals connect to an Internet, where they can own and be properly compensated for their time and data.
This is more advantageous than the web where giant, centralized companies own the lion’s share of the web and they can siphon large percentages of profits. Additionally, it’s expected that Web 3.0 will help computers understand the semantics or meanings of sentences so they can generate, share, and connect content through search and analysis.
Thanks to semantic metadata, Web 3.0 will allow facilitating greater connectivity between data sources. As a result, the user experience will evolve to the next level of connectivity that manages all of the available information on the Internet.
Mobile Device Processors
In order for augmented reality to appeal to the mainstream public, we likely need augmented reality to work on normal glasses. This would require small, superfast mobile processors that could be fitted on normally-looking glasses.
VR devices will also need fast mobile processors to handle hyper-realistic graphics, low latency, high refresh rates, high frames per second, and so forth. As processors require more cores and components, we may also see the introduction of optical components that will work in conjunction with traditional silicon components. This can result in a 100-times decrease in data transfer speeds.
