Technology has come a long way in the past 20 years. Before that, people never dreamed that we would someday have printers that could print anything from car parts to an actual full-size house. Wearable technology has been hot as well. You can find watches and tee-shirts that measure your heart rate and tell you how many steps you walk each day. In addition, you’ll find new gadgets that make life a little easier and a whole lot more fun.
