Smart technology and talking plants
Smart technology has the potential to improve our healthcare, revolutionize our workplaces, and customize our homes. As this trend in smart tech progresses, we may find ourselves living in a sci-fi utopia.
Drones that fly themselves
Drones aren’t just fun; they’re useful, with applications in aerial photography, package deliveries, safety inspections, and even humanitarian efforts.
At events like Drone Games and Nodecopter, programmers use software to see who can make the coolest drone. They often reuse open-source code snippets to program features like voice to text, face recognition, and advanced directional 3D movement.
While these projects are fun, they can also help you land a job. The drone job market will grow faster than predicted, and some universities even offer degrees in drone technology. Industries that will use drones include the military, real estate, construction, filmmaking, and even insurance.

Websites to inspire action
Website design skills are growing in demand. Companies spend a lot of time and money trying to drive traffic to their website. Designers who can convert that traffic into paying customers are especially competitive in the job market.
Here are some amazing websites to inspire your next web-design project:

- Cavalier Challenge: This online game immerses you in a experience right from the get-go.
- Air View: Air View is an innovative way to visualize abstract air quality data to make it feel “real.”
- Key Ideas: Key Ideas is a film-production agency that uses their website to showcase their unique skills and services.
