Many people are saying that 2020 is a giant, huge, stinking dumpster fire of a year and I honestly can’t really disagree with that on many fronts. Recessions, loss of life, job losses and more is not good.

Today though I want to look to the brighter side of 2020 as there has been a huge amount of good stuff happening even with all the negatives of COVID-19. So let’s dive into the categories and see what’s launched, why it’s amazing and hopefully you too can agree that 2020 hasn’t been all bad.

Due to the huge number of new technologies released and tracked, I’m not going to go into detail on all of them. I’ve also highlighted some of the more major advances in yellow. If you’d like more info please follow the link!

Still More To Come!

That’s a lot of tech and a lot of serious advancements, especially in a year that’s been so disruptive in general too. Add onto this that we’re still not even done! AMD is scheduled to drop their heavily anticipated Radeon 6000 GPU’s on October 28th, Clean Meat costs are still plummeting and are now around $155/kg (down 97% in just 3 years) plus SpaceX Starship SN8 is due to take a 15km Flight Test any day now which will be utterly incredible to say the least (read here as to why).

2020 has and will continue to be, amazing across a wide range of technologies. Even with extensive reading and cataloguing in our Technology Forecaster it’s impossible to keep up with everything and we have to leave some things out like the civilisation saving announcement by China to go carbon neutral by 2060.

So what amazing, huge advances have you seen or read about that we haven’t covered here? Do you think 2021 will be even better? Let us know below in the comments!
