Innovations and advancements have notably converged science and technology. According to Life Sciences expert Michelle Dipp of Biosprings, this unification redefines medicine as we know it.
Technology trends dominate the life sciences today. At the same time, smartphones and tablets are means that enable research and development.
Let us see how your mobile phones contribute to these scientific innovations:
Interactive astronomy guide
Are you a fan of stars and constellations? Or perhaps you enjoy watching how stars twinkle at night? Then you surely must have installed an astronomical tool on your phone.
Interactive sky charts allow you to explore the night sky and give you a better look at the moon, planets, and deep-sky objects – even without optical aid.
Indeed there are a lot of star gazing applications that space enthusiasts can choose from.
Aside from a real-time presentation of the sky map, these applications have educational features. They provide general information about celestial bodies, galleries, articles, and astronomy facts.
So, if you do not want to miss the next full moon or when Venus will be at its brightest state, head on and get yourself an astronomy guide application.
As each country’s government has made an effort to notify its citizens about calamities and disasters immediately, we still want to receive real-time updates about what is happening.
Luckily, disaster prediction applications were designed to send notifications of high-risk times for tropical storms and solar storms. But keep in mind that no known technology can predict other natural disasters like earthquakes. The least we can do is prepare.
There are also other applications for disaster management and disaster control available. With these mobile applications, we get free information to stay safe anywhere in the world.
Some key features include an interactive map interface, situational analysis reports, and map overlays.
Undeniably, technology has rapidly evolved over time. Little did we know, our smartphones are not merely used to make and receive calls and messages but have developed more features.
An android application called MyShake detects seismic movement using only your phone.
In the field of medicine, one application that will amaze you is a skin cancer scanner. Applications were created to examine suspicious moles on your body. It can also guide you through a self-diagnosis process.
Definitely, we would not want unsupported conclusions. It is still advisable to send off scans to qualified dermatologists.
Heart rate monitors, microscopes, and thermometers are other scientific tools our smartphones and tablets are capable of becoming. With this, conducting research and physical assessments are quickly done.
Want your nook to get your new look? Virtual accelerators and designing applications got you covered.
You may now design your home in 2D, 3D, and virtual reality modes. Some applications even let you look at their other users users’ design and spot an inspiration.
There are free applications that merge the worlds of rendering and shopping. These applications virtually outfit rooms and let customers shop for the look directly.
Phones even measure furniture and space for you. You will need to snap a photo of space, and voila! The measurements are given. Don’tDon’t forget to take note of it!
Mathematics and science are covered in school, but rarely do kids get to explore how these studies can be put to practical use.
Schools now offer Robotics clubs and Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics classes. In these classes, learners get hands-on experience combining technology and logic.
Smartphones and tablets may be used to store codes and navigate simple machines – and robots!
Educational applications are used primarily for convenience and safety. But nowadays, parents opt for online learning because of the current pandemic.
Ebooks, learning material, and classes are found and done online. Parents must be strict in selecting age-appropriate tools for their children’s learning.
Mobile applications can now turn you into nature experts!
INaturalist is an application where thousands of species are listed on. It will help you identify a species you spotted by merely taking a photo and sharing it on the site.
The app also makes conversation and discussion with other users possible. So if you happen to meet a new insect, do not forget to say “Hi,” and take a photo of it.
Explore earth’s ecosystem
What could make learning fun and exciting? Through interactive games!
Exploring Earth’sEarth’s ecosystem would be so much fun, especially if you do it with friends. New learning and discoveries are integrated with games in a lot of mobile applications.
The wonders of plant life, ecological sanctuaries, and interconnectedness of the world are creatively and carefully touched in many learning applications.
Soon, your child will be able to understand the concept of sustainability and become environmental stewards. That’sThat’s because these applications involve lessons about protecting the environment and its inhabitants.
