100 Things to Watch in 2014

Posted by: in North America

Edible Packaging, Heads-Up Movement and Haptic Technology—just a few items from our annual list of 100 Things to Watch for the year ahead. With the Winter Olympics in Sochi, FIFA World Cup in Brazil and first commercial space flight, 2014 promises a lot of things to watch. Our list spotlights developments around these major events and across sectors including technology, television, food and spirits, retail, health care and the arts

Many of our Things to Watch are technology-centric, including the advent of beacons, Internet safety nets, robots for kids and even techno-paranoia. The list also includes new foods and beverages to watch (savory yogurt, soju), new markets opening up (related to marijuana, privacy and Google Glass), new behaviors (contemplative computing, digital grieving) and ideas with the potential to ladder up to bigger trends.

Check out our list, which includes a little bit about what makes each item worth watching. We’d love to hear your thoughts: Do you agree with our choices? What will you be watching for in 2014?

This is always one of my favorites pieces of reading, as it’s futurist but practical. Great curation this year as always.
