What’s hot for the New Year? 2017 Tech Trends.

Do you ever feel like you’re living in the future? Technology never stands still, it’s always moving, always growing, changing every aspect of our lives. Fifty, fifteen, or even five years ago, some of the commonplace technologies of today would’ve seemed like something out of a sci-fi movie.  And that makes the future even more exciting.  Here’s a look at 2017 tech trends and what amazing things you can expect in the next year.

Wearable tech is growing.

From fitness trackers to augmented reality, wearable computers have gone mainstream lately, and all signs point to this trend continuing to grow. Smart glasses like the short-lived Google goggles are poised for a big comeback. Stylish and chic, they’ll  provide all the benefits in a less-bulky package. In fact, in general, look for wearable tech to get smaller and more powerful in the next year. Customization will allow each user to personalize this tech and make it his or her own.

Wireless charging is here.

Way back in the early 20th century, genius and possibly mad scientist Nikola Tesla came up with the framework for wireless energy. For whatever reason, this idea was abandoned for over a century. Until now. Wireless charging stations have become the technology du jour for smartphones, tablets and all the latest technology. Look for power cords to become relegated to the history books moving forward.

 Bluetooth Tile Trackers

We’ve all been there, frantically searching for our car keys all while holding 3 arms full of necessities and checking the clock to anticipate just how late we’re going to be. Now though that burden is being relieved – at least to some extent – with the help of Bluetooth® tile trackers. One of our favorites is the Brookstone® Espy Tracker can be attached to car keys, then synced to cell phones and tablets to help anyone find their lost item with a fraction of the frustration.

The future is now. Are you ready?
