Revisiting the Tech Revolution – Two and a Half Years Later

Two years ago in a previous post titled “Preparing for the Tech Revolution”, we highlighted a few astounding and innovative technologies that were being explored. Today, I’d like to revisit that topic to see just how far along those technologies have come in just a little over two and half years since writing that post. 

IoT (Internet of Things)

The Internet of Things (IoT) is something that most of us are familiar with by now. Previously, we highlighted smart devices and many other applications that IoT provides. It’s more commonplace to see this technology already influencing our daily lives. With our different streaming services synced to our phones and televisions, and our smart devices and appliances at home sending us phone notifications stating that a task has completed or that maintenance is needed, in a weird way we’re all learning what to expect from IoT down the line. You can find IoT attempting to make our lives easier in smart homes, healthcare, transportation, agriculture, industrial automation, retail and in the energy sector (just to name a few) but what’s happening with it today? Well, a recent press release from details that the Enterprise IoT Market To Reach USD 2465.2 Billion at a CAGR of 28.40% by 2030- Report by Market Research Future (MRFR). There are some key players expected to lead the charge such as Microsoft, Bosch, Oracle and a few others all listed in the press release. It is an interesting read and I welcome you to check out the link. It seems that on the larger scale of things more smart cities are on the horizon. With all the money governments and private companies are putting into IoT technology and with how connected our devices have seamlessly blended into our daily lives, smart cities are not hard to imagine. With that said, has a great post about the Top 7 Smart Cities in the World in 2023 for you to enjoy. If all of this sounds interesting to you and you’re wondering what careers to consider then checkout the STEM careers listed below. 

  • Network Engineer
  • IoT Architect
  • Software Engineer
  • Firmware Engineer
  • Hardware Engineer
  • IoT Data Analyst
  • IoT Data Scientist
  • IoT Application Engineer
  • IoT Developer
  • IoT UX Designer
  • Environmental Engineer
  • Energy Management Engineer


Nanotechnology is another fascinating piece to this technological revolution. In our last post we gave a brief introduction to computer nanotech and covered a hot trending device at that time, with the emergence of Samsung’s foldable Galaxy Z, but what’s happening with nanotechnology today? 

Well let’s shift our focus onto nanomedicine where another recent press release from details that the Nanomedicine Market to Grow at CAGR of 12% through 2031. I currently work as an engineer in the medical device industry so I may be a little bit more biased here but the potential for this technology to help others medically is very intriguing to me. The field of nanomedicine uses nanotech to diagnose, treat, and prevent disease at the molecular and cellular level. It is done by designing, synthesizing and characterizing nanoparticles, nanobots, and other nanoscale materials and devices for medical applications. The benefit of this is that nanomedicine can deliver drugs directly to the site of a disease which increases effectiveness and reduces side effects. This ultimately helps with early disease detection, more precise diagnosis, and more effective treatments. So where have we seen this before? 

You might have guessed it but the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines were both developed using nanomedicine technology. To stimulate the production of a spike protein found on the surface of the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes COVID-19, the Pfizer vaccine uses messenger RNA (mRNA). The mRNA is encapsulated within a lipid nanoparticle for a delivery into cells where they are instructed to produce more spike proteins. Once the immune system recognizes the spike protein as foreign, it goes into action.

The Moderna vaccine (mRNA-1273) is similar in that it also uses mRNA to stimulate the production of the spike protein by way of encapsulation within a lipid nanoparticle for delivery.

So there you have it, that’s what nanotech has been up to. We strayed away from computer nanotech this time but it’s just as fascinating if not more depending on how you look at it. If this does sound interesting to you, listed below are a few STEM careers that you might enjoy. 

  • Nanomedical Engineer
  • Nanotoxicologist
  • Nanoparticle Chemist
  • Biomedical Researcher
  • Nanobiosensor Specialist
  • Drug Delivery Scientist
  • Regenerative Medicine Researcher
  • Nanomaterials Safety Expert
  • Nanobiophysics
  • Nanomedicine Entrepreneur
  • Nanomedical Imaging Specialist
  • Medical Device Engineer

Quantum Computing

In our previous post we provided a brief introduction to quantum computing. The reason quantum computing is so fascinating is because it is a rapidly evolving field. Quantum computers have the potential to solve problems exponentially faster than classical computers. That is why private companies and governments are putting big bucks behind this technology. Quantum computers could change the game for cryptography, drug discovery and optimization. This technology can help generate various creative ideas, strategies, and implementations that we have not yet begun to imagine. Quantum computing is based on the principles of quantum mechanics, and studying quantum computing can help us better understand the nature of our universe. Quantum computing can also tie in with various other fields to help create breakthroughs in AI, chemistry, material science, IoT and nanotechnology. 

So what’s been going on with quantum computing since we last talked about it? How about holographic wormholes! Yes, you read that right, holographic wormholes. I’ve added the video below provided by Quanta Magazine to better explain.

If quantum computers are interesting to you and you’re wondering about STEM careers to consider, listed below are a few great options.

  • Computer Engineer
  • Information Scientist
  • Cryptography Specialist
  • Physicist
  • Materials Scientist
  • Optics Engineer
  • Algorithm Developer
  • Software Developer
  • Hardware Engineer
  • Control Engineer
  • Information Security Analyst
  • Machine Learning Scientist


Amazing technology such as IoT, nanomedicine, and quantum computing will change the world as we know it. There will be a variety of opportunities out there for anyone looking for a career path that will help shape the future of tomorrow using the tools from the technological revolution of today. From designing and implementing systems to exploring the limits to how we ultimately understand quantum mechanics, there are countless possibilities for innovation. Who knows, maybe we will revisit this topic again in another two and half years, or maybe you’ll be well on your way to changing the world and want to share it with STEM Voodoo. Cheers!
