The Back To The Future trilogy showed us what the 21st century might be like from the perspective of the 80s, but where has reality left us? Technology has indeed improved and enhanced our way of life, but we’re still without flying cars.
Short of owning a flying car, there is still an overwhelming integration of technology into our daily lives. Take the time to dig into a few of the most influential ways in which technology has enhanced life in the 21st century.
Tech makes it easier to find housing
Looking for your next place to live isn’t half the battle it was just a decade ago. In 2018, you don’t even have to leave your current place to find your next place to live. Take a virtual tour through several prospective homes, and choose your favorite along the way.

It’s also much easier to find an agent, if you choose to go that route. You can investigate the property management companies around town, and even dig into what the neighborhood life is really like for the locals.
Technology saves lives
It’s clear that technology has enhanced the medical field in a big way, but there are other, more practical, ways in which technology works to save the lives of the masses. Mobile health applications are becoming more and more popular.
The impact of having a digital dietician is powerful. Mothers in third-world countries are using mobile maternal apps to monitor their pregnancies and children. The everyday effect of developing educational health apps is becoming more clear each day.
Communication is revolutionized
Technology has given us an array of communication mediums we could only dream of a generation ago. The way in which we communicate is different too.
Social media websites, emails, video conferencing, facetiming, and other methods of digital communication have eliminated time and distance as obstacles to getting your message across.
Home entertainment is booming
Technology has definitely affected how we entertain ourselves at home. Family game night wasn’t ready for the shift technology provided. Technology can bring a whole new world into your living room with the click of a button.
Video games, streaming videos, endless music access, mobile devices, computers, laptops, and more give home entertainment an collection of endless possibilities. There is no excuse to claim boredom in the 21st century.
Technology boosts education
Education is no exception to the rule when it comes to technology’s power to change and enhance. Not only is education far more accessible than ever before, the way we educate is much different.
Classrooms are stocked with iPads and touch-enabled white boards. Students are able to take classes from home, no matter what level of education they are currently working.
