Imagine we would have stopped at 1843?

This is the beginning of the 2nd digital decade and 4 trends

Post smart phone area

                65% of mobile use is non communication activities

                Phones used as hubs

                Cloud service for all mobile devices

                Device, Connectivity, Service, Interface App

                Mobile devices are leading the way in sales for households, using it for door locks, head units,   radios, A/C, health monitors, cameras.

                The Smartphone has become the viewfinder for your digital life.

The age of Algorithms

                1857 Sir Charles Wheatstone invents continuous feeding paper was invented.

                2006 Nintendo wii gaming uses accelerometers, all cell phones have multiple degrees of               measurements.

                Microphones built into devices in multiple locations unlike the past where only 1 would be used.

                Camera lenses go from scarce to surplus and can now install multiple in each device.

                Google driverless car travels 300k without an accident using only sensors.

                Sensors used to check your posture, pressure, stress, moisture sensor for plants are making a bit            hit this year.

Contextual Connectivity

                Smart meant connected in recent years, moving beyond that into real intelligence.

                New types of watches, transparent monitors used in convenience stores

Changing flow of storytelling

                Digital omnivores: tales of 2ndary screens.  We move from device to device, instead of starting                 on a pc or a TV, people are using their mobile devices as their primary instead of 2nd screen.

                Audible magic and Magic Ruby will help engage, connect and monetize.

                Changing face of computing, the clamshell look for notebooks are changing, 20-30 new designs                 will be showcased to the show. Thinner, flexible, twist, gesture, voice solutions.

                High pixel density screens will rush the TV and mobile industry this year.

                Ultra HD will be launched by companies such as Samsung, Toshiba, Sony, Sharp, Haier, Hisense,                 Westinghouse and Changhong.

                Digital to Analog Transitions such as 3d printing, moisture sensor by manufactures like CAO gadgets.

These trends will continue to grow in the future.  1956 Herbert Simon predicts ?machines in 20 years will be capable of doing any job a man can do?We are not there yet, but moving in that direction?
