Virtual retinal display (VRD) devices for VR and augmented reality (AR) applications

We are still at the early stages, when it comes to Virtual retinal display (VRD) devices for VR and augmented reality (AR) applications.
Bu the most exciting is to recall that, the Global virtual retinal display (VRD) market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.51% during the period 2016-2020, according to Technavio.
Technavio also reveals that, the US is expected to continue to be a leading technology provider due to the presence of companies such as Avegant, Magic Leap, and MicroVision
In effect, there are several projects related to smart glasses and HMDs lined up, and there is a huge demand for AR technology in the US. 
Sunil Kumar Singh, a lead analyst at Technavio for displays research asserts, “The Americas is also one of the earliest adopters of AR, and there are a number of apps being developed for iOS and Android. This gives good potential for VRD technology providers such as MicroVision to penetrate the Americas.”

China is on an exciting curve to dominate the B2C E-Commerce

Steadily China is taking on the USA, the UK, Japan and Germany as the largest and fastest growing B2C E-Commerce sales giant. 
According to Research and Markets, China is predicted to maintain growth rates above 20% over 2016 to 2020, as a declining growth rate is characteristic of these world leaders. This is especially so in the mature market of the UK, the global leader in B2C E-Commerce's share of total retail. 
The same firm reveals that, there are trends influencing development of the online retail market in China, USA, the UK, Japan and Germany, such as cross-border shopping, M-Commerce and omnichannel shopping.

Increased construction of modular data centers and adoption of containerized data centers

Increased construction of modular data centers and adoption of containerized data centers have increased, driven by their ability to offer maximum efficiency through reduced energy and reduced carbon emission.
 These data centers are expected to gain considerable traction among enterprises in the future because of their effectiveness, and their ability to adapt to variations in temperature and humidity.

Image sensor in our ever-connected world

We are now into the world of sensors, where sensors are at the core of stakes within each industry and vertical. 
According to Research and Markets, the global image sensor market is anticipated to reach USD 26.41 billion by 2024. 
The rising expenditure on security & surveillance in public places is fueling the dynamic as, the impact of information technology in the automotive, defense, medical, and industrial application.

Liquid immersion cooling Vs air-based cooling in Data center industry

One can observe that, Data center operators are building data center facilities that can deliver high efficiency and reduce power consumption. Cooling solutions have become an integral part of data centers. These solutions can be classified into two types namely, air-based and liquid-based cooling. Air-based cooling is a traditional method of cooling a data center, which involves higher consumption of electricity. 

In effect, despite extensive R&D in the data center space to bring about a reduction in OPEX, data center operators have struggled to develop an infrastructure that consumes less power and requires minimal maintenance. 
Data center operators opt for liquid immersion cooling systems that consume very less energy, which is almost 90% less compared to traditional air-based CRAC systems. 
In terms of OPEX, the growing number of racks installed in the data center facility and the rising rack power density has prompted many data center operators to opt for liquid immersion cooli…
