Mobile payments – expansion of apps that deal with coupons and loyalty passes, and will contactless payments take off?
Health care – key areas for “the web of connected things”
3D printing – possibilities are endless
Smartphone battles – wars to get more intense
New user interfaces – look for touchscreens and motion control on consumer devices
More advanced cyber attacks – attacks will become more sophisticated
