If we know one thing for sure about the advancements of technology, it’s that it is making the world more efficient. By making the world more efficient, it has the power to connect people too. However, technology can also separate us through the echo chambers that are social media platforms.

There is no stopping this progress. Whether you are excited about the promise of the future or are hesitant about its impact on people, it’s vital to use technology to better our world. Here are some new tech services that are making the world more efficient and connected.

Grocery Delivery

It used to be that if you wanted groceries you had to go to the grocery store. That’s a no-brainer, right? Actually, now that you mention it… Thanks to services such as Instacart, Amazon Fresh, and others, you don’t have to go to the grocery store anymore; you can just order your groceries online and they will be delivered to you. The only downside is that you need to be at home to get your perishables into the refrigerator as soon as possible. 

Well guess what? Now that you mention it… again… That’s right, you don’t even have to be home anymore. With the advent of the refrigerator locker, your perishable groceries can stay cool until you are able to retrieve them. These aren’t ubiquitous yet, but if you’re one of the lucky ones with access–congratulations. This is tech-based efficiency at its finest!

Helicopter Rideshare

While it remains for the very rich, there is a blossoming market for helicopter rideshare options. You’ve probably heard of it. There are helicopters going from building to building in New York carrying business people who need to get across the traffic fast. Uber has already begun providing this service, but it’s probably just the beginning.

Drones are becoming more accessible. Soon drone rides could be a mainstay of our society. Do you need to get to a city that is a few hours away by car? You could do it in minutes with a helicopter. Whether there is a human driving the helicopter is almost irrelevant. Drones will be able to do it safely and more efficiently before you know it.


Fin-tech is the combination of financial services and technology. Block chain technology is greatly changing the financial services industry. There are all kinds of fin-tech businesses popping up, making it easier for people to buy, sell, invest, and convert currencies. With so many ways to facilitate the average and not-so-average consumer, fin-tech is becoming a lucrative business.

Start with cryptocurrency. Apps like CoinBase are quite successful for helping people around the world trade in these encrypted currencies. It doesn’t matter where you are in the world, these services work the same. Furthermore, there has never been an easier time to invest in the stock market. While the market is changing in new, unprecedented ways, you can understand it from anywhere in the world using fin-tech resources. What about personal money management? There are apps that can convert your currency into others around the world and help you with saving, spending, and proper investing. The sky’s the limit for fin-tech services.

Customer Service

While a lot of people complain about the automated phone answering machines you get when you call a company. However, this is often because the technology they are using isn’t the most advanced. With artificial intelligence, chatbots alone can provide superior customer service almost instantly. Whether you are trying to get your question answered or don’t know what direction to go in, AI is providing all kinds of new ways to satisfy consumers quickly. With better customer service, we can better connect with each other too.

Tech services are exploding. There are more ways that tech companies are helping people make their lives efficient than ever. It is connecting us both physically and by communication. You can get the food from your hometown or travel from New York City to Washington DC in a fraction of the time.

This is just the beginning. There is no telling just how technology will change our world, but it is already becoming clearer where it is headed. Whether you are excited about all this or have trepidation, it’s important to keep up with the ways that tech is making our world smaller and more efficient. Then, we can choose just how we want to use technology to make the world a better place to live.
