Unicode 7.0 to bring 250 new Emoji

The Unicode standard will be upgraded to version 7.0 this year. Along with the additional of several new scripts, it will also be adding 250 new Emoji to the already long list.

Almost all of these are objects, with things such as ‘Thermometer’, ‘File Cabinet’, ‘Right Speech Bubble’, ‘Hammer And Wrench’, etc. but there are also some gems, such as ‘Man In Business Suit Levitating’ and ‘Reversed Hand With Middle Finger Extended’.

Right now their description has been revealed so companies like Apple, Google and Microsoft who have their own Emoji sets will get to work on drawing their own rendition based on the description. Depending upon how long it takes to finish creating the new emoji will decide when you get to use them.
