We expect the technological improvements, the new launches of mechanism and the lower costs to arouse the bigger interest in the technology of virtual reality of Oculus of Facebook, Google as well as Sony, HTC and others, according to the Juniper Research.
Two consumer devices are already available: the Oculus VR headset that was made for Samsung Galaxy smartphones and Google Cardboard, that works with any smartphone. The juniper waits these devices and competing mechanism to become much more popular in the next five years.
As Juniper reported, the technology was now poised to transform the entertainment industry, including games and video, in the next few years, whilst offering the potential to quickly expand into other markets such as industrial and healthcare. These will be a great news for the startups.
Box CEO Aaron Levie said in an interview with CNBC that they might get to a point where there was enough, ubiquity of virtual reality where you could really build a company in this market that day. The company of Levie sells the software of the company to the management of contents and the file sharing.
There had already been more than 200 companies developing the technology of virtual reality including the equipment and the software and they are worth a combined 13 billion dollars, according to the VB Profiles research.
And in certain point, consumers could find the technology of particularly useful virtual reality when they go shopping, according to the recent Ericsson ConsumerLab research.
This company said that half of the users of smart phone, whom it examined, would want a 3D selfie, which can be used as an avatar to try on-line clothes and 64 percent would want the capacity to see the real size of an article and the shape by denouncing online, according to a report of this company.
As Pepper from Softbank, the Buddy of Blue Frog Robotics and the other robots become more widely available in 2016, the consumers probably are going to welcome robots in their houses, according to the Juniper.
When the Pepper was taken out in Japan last June, the first 1,000 robots liquidated in less than one minute, according to Softbank. The company plans to sell 1,000 per month at $1,600 a pop the following year, according to Juniper. We consider the Pepper as social robot, humanoid and it can feel human feelings, according to the company.
The more accessible Buddy is also a social robot, according to its manufacturer. It can serve as a personal assistant and an amusing companion for children, according to the Blue Frog. We expect that this robot will be available in July, 2016 at $649.
There has already been a number of the 3D printers on the market, simple printers, which work with plastic to complex machines, which print using human cells. But we expect the sales of these printers to grow up considerably in 2016 and beyond as the improved technology will take into account the printing in an even wider range of the equipments, according to the Gartner company.
The 3D printer companies keep moving forward the technology, which facilitates the impression in other biological materials, pharmaceuticals, nickel alloys, glass, carbon fiber for diverse industries, and can print after all the use of the mixed equipments, according to Gartner. This company expects to see an annual growth rate compound of 64.1 percent for expeditions of 3D printer shipments through 2019.
On the consumer side, half of the users of smartphone examined by Ericsson ConsumerLab said that they would want a 3D printer to print household objects as spoons, toys and spare parts for devices, according to this company. Approximately 44 percent said that they would even want to print their own food or nutritional supplements, according to Ericsson ConsumerLab, which led an online investigation of 6,649 urban iOS and the smartphone users of Android ages 15 – 69 in 13 major world cities in October, 2015. But in the short term, S&P Capital IQ analyst Angelo Zino has a more conservative prospect.
Zino said in a phone interview that overall when you looked at the 3-D printing space, expectations were going into 2015 had been extremely high and clearly [sales] had not lived up to those expectations.
Zino said that it expects that sales of 3D printer really become a kick-start in 2017, planned by the HP anticipated entry into the business in the second half of the 2016. For many technological startups, Zino expects crowdfunding the assistant fuel major growth the next year against 2015, according to the Research for Juniper.
Juniper researchers wrote that Crowdfunding, where people invested small sums in projects, they were charitable causes, local projects or businesses, reportedly had reached $16 billion in 2014, and was expected to more than double that year and looking out for the emergence of an array of new crowdfunding sites had dedicated to tech startups in 2016, offering would have been investor’s equity in the company or alternative rewards.
