Korea has officially become an aged society. And there's been a growing need for the technologies that can boost social activities of the elderly and provide health care for the aged. So a lot of related researches have been carried out. Dementia is one of the degenerative diseases that occurs commonly in the elderly. Older people with dementia have low cognitive ability, so they can easily be lost. Therefore, a technology that can track the location of the patients has been developed. In case of the existing location tracking devices, people had to hang it around the neck or wear it like a watch, so it was uncomfortable to wear them all the time. Therefore, shoes with location sending equipment have been newly developed for the elderly with dementia. And it has gained positive responses. Moreover, technologies for the elderly who live alone have also been developed. Smart table, which can automatically sense the dishes on the table and analyze the nutritional balance has been introduced. And a robot, which helps the elderly communicate with their families and friends more comfortably, has also been developed. As part of an effort to prevent dementia, coloring exercises that implemented AR technologies and indirect experiences based on the VR technologies have been provided to the elderly. We introduce a lot of different technologies that have been developed to enrich the lives of the elderly.
3D printing technology has continuously achieved remarkable growth. The technology has led the growth of a variety of industrial areas including the manufacturing sector. Money Monster introduces the ongoing development 3D printing technologies in the domestic market. A large-sized 3D printer, which is about 5 meters long, has been newly developed. And it has suggested new methods to the field of fashion. It has become possible to print out a suit of clothes at once, without the need to go through complicated processes. A fashion show was held to introduce the clothing produced only by using the 3D printing technologies. Moreover, advanced 3D printing technologies have been applied to the food industry. Users of 3D food printer can have fun eating food and creating diversified designs at the same time. As it goes through the 3D modeling process, it is possible to make chocolate into desired forms. 3D printing technologies have been widely applied to almost all kinds of industrial sectors. And it has garnered a lot of attention in the construction industry as a promising technology. Instead of creating simple designs or sculptures, it has become possible to print out the entire building based on the 3D printing technology. We explore the continuing development of 3D printing technology, which has suggested a new paradigm to a lot of different industries.
