Technology moves at warp speed. By the time you unbox that shiny new gadget or install that new software update, it’s time to move onto the next big thing.
The scope of technology stretched far beyond smartphones and laptops this year. Sure, we saw Android smartphones mature and catch up to the iPhone with premium materials and powerful cameras, but we also got “hoverboards,” and more affordable drones, and our first real taste of consumer VR. Wearables, particularly, smartwatches, are also finally becoming mainstream with fashionable styles and intuitive use cases.
