Restless innovations and search for new things are what power the technology industry, and this year has also seen its fair share of new technologies and inventions, from smartwatches to ultra high-definition curved TVs.
Imagine being able to build a desk for your study with just a click of a button, instead of having to go through the painstaking carpentry work of cutting and carving wood. How simpler would your life be?
The year 2012 saw a flurry ofnew innovative products and technology, aslife withoutmobile gadgets and Internet-on-the-go becomes more and moreunthinkable. So as we startoff the new year, weve listed a few recent news stories that kindly put togetherthe main tech themes and interesting new ideas that emerged in the course of last year.
A while ago we’ve shared a story about Green Tomorrow, a Samsung project to develop and test green technologies for the smart, convenient and environment-friendly lifestyle. From smart meters to control your home power use to interactive gadgets to assist with house chores, new technologies are set to transform our way of living in the not too dist
Smartphones have taken on such an important role in our everyday life that it is hard to imagine a life without them. But, cell phones as well as other mobile electronic devices are only as good as they are charged and powerless when they are, well, without power.
Remember our post on numerous projects undertaken by our chemicals affiliates to help save the environment? One of the key technologies utilized to cut emissions of environmentally hazardous substances such as CO2 involved recycling waste heat or organic wastes.
To save energy and reduce greenhouse gas emissions, you can swith to renewable power sources such as solar and wind, buy a new hybrid car and get more energy-efficient TVs and refrigerators. But doing a better job with energy management is equally important and possibly more practical option.
Earlier this month our affiliate Samsung Heavy Industries unveiled a plan to set up a cutting-edge 7 megawatt wind power turbine in Fife, Scotland, to develop and test a critical offshore wind power technology. Now that wind farms are popping up across the globe and even venturing outinto the sea, wind power is emerging as one of the most prominent
Just like mobile phones and super-power computers have changed the way we communicate and do business, technologies are now set to transform medicine and healthcare. Wireless communication, artificial intelligence, social networks, 3D printing – all types of different cutting-edge technologies hold potentials to dramatically increase the reach of m
As we strive to make components in electronic devices smaller, or to come up with more efficient rechargeable batteries, one promising area to produce a breakthrough is new materials research – the realm of chemistry and nanotechnology.
Those of us who’ve witnessed the rise of the Internet, personal computing and mobile communications understand how quickly and fundamentally new inventions change our world. Today’s emerging technology will become tomorrow’s full-blown business that impacts everyone’s life.
We’ve had quite a summer this year – different parts of the world suffering extreme weather conditions ranging from heat waves to draught to flooding. Many argue the unpredictable weather pattern is a deepening symptom of the global climate change, which is just another reason for us to invest in emission-free alternative energy such as solar power
Aside from our day-to-day businesses,we often join hands with experts around the world to tackle experimental projects in technology, products and design. Some of them make it as next-generation products while others are more about testing new ideas and advancing ongoing research. Take a moment to browse the latest news on some of these experiments
It has been an impressive couple weeks for innovation! Take a moment to see some of the projects just now underway, each of which are promoting and pressing forward on creative challenges in the field of healthcare and green energy:
As much has been in the news lately about clean energy and green technology, one of the new areas of focus for Samsung, we found a few interesting articles and blog posts on these topics that we would like to share:
Samsung is a global corporate encompassing diverse businesses ranging from electronics, construction,
petrochemicals, finance and more. Founded in 1938, Samsung has worked to make a better world
through our products and services. With 2012 net sales of 303 trillion Korean won,
Samsung is also spearheading efforts to bring innovations in clean energy, healthcare and biotechnology.
