Trends that will dominate the tech world in 2014.

WEARABLE TECH
Google Glass and smartwatches created a buzz in 2013. There are high expectations in this area in 2014. Pebble has added a steel cast to its smartwatch and priced it at $250. LG has also forayed into this segment with its 'Lifeband Touch' accompanied by its 'Heart Rate Earphones', a wristband paired with a smartphone and earphones to monitor your heart rate

4K LAPTOPS
4K or 4-times High Definition was the biggest hit at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas in January this year. Toshiba has taken this level of resolution beyond TVs, bringing it to laptops running Windows 8.1. It has announced two such, the Tecra W50 and the Satellite P50t. These are notebooks designed for professionals working with graphicintensive applications

TVs THAT BEND

This is a prototype, but prototypes show the future. Samsung recently showcased its 85-inch 'Bendable TV'. The demo unit could switch between a flat panel and a curved screen at the touch of a button. It had a mechanical system pushing out the edges of the screen to achieve the transformation

DUAL-OS IN TABLETS

Intel has announced its dual-OS platform that brings Android and Windows together in a single device. The company claims that switching between the two operating systems will take less than 10 seconds. Following in its footsteps, Micromax is coming up with the Canvas LapTab, which will be available from February. Asus's Transformer Book Duet is also on the same lines
