Tech Trends To Watch Out For In 2024

By Apoorva P January 7, 2024

In the eager anticipation of the technological strides set to unfold in the upcoming year, our focus is squarely on tracking the trajectory of cutting-edge innovations that promise to reshape the technological landscape in 2024. The dawn of this new year holds the prospect of witnessing groundbreaking developments across various pivotal domains.


Quantum computing emerges as a frontrunner among the tech trends that define 2024. Recent revelations, such as IBM’s Quantum System Two, underscore the accelerating momentum in this field. The modular computing units of the Quantum System Two, boasting dimensions of an impressive 22 feet in width and 12 feet in height signify a significant leap forward. Positioned to tackle intricate challenges in medicine, ecology, and economics that currently surpass the capabilities of traditional computers, quantum computing is on the cusp of transformative breakthroughs.

The race in quantum computing is intensifying, featuring heavyweight contenders like IBM, Google, Microsoft, Honeywell, and key players in China. While the journey towards achieving mature quantum systems presents its challenges, the revolutionary potential held by these machines positions them as a central focus for comprehensive scrutiny throughout the unfolding year.

Venturing into a different dimension, our attention is directed toward the dynamic evolution of electric vehicles (EVs) spanning diverse terrains—land, air, and sea. The landscape includes intriguing entries such as personal electric vertical takeoff and landing aircraft (eVTOLs) exemplified by the Jetson One, electric trucks pioneered by industry leaders Tesla and Einride, electric boats like the innovative Arc One, and futuristic scooters like the Honda Motocompacto. Noteworthy debuts anticipated in 2024 include the Aptera solar car, Zapata’s Air Scooter, and a novel Arc boat, all poised to captivate attention with their innovative designs and functionalities.

In the realm of brain-computer interfaces, yet another compelling trend takes center stage. Our exploration led us to the headquarters of Synchron, where we witnessed a demonstration of the stentrode—a revolutionary device eliminating the necessity for open brain surgery. Implantable near the brain’s motor cortex, the stentrode empowers users to control devices through their thoughts. Noteworthy players like Neuralink, spearheaded by Elon Musk, and Blackrock Neurotech are advancing the field with groundbreaking innovations, including surgical robots and ultrathin, flexible electrodes designed to capture extensive neural data.
