One of the most significant facets of technology that has been immensely revolutionized is communication. Gone are the times when we need to rely on physical resources just to send a message. Through the power of digital technology, everyone is now embracing an easier and more comfortable lifestyle.

But what if we can still take technology further than we imagine?
