Five tech predictions for 2016
Kevin Rose

Here are some to add:

  1. Farfield mic tech will improve towards end of 2016 working to connect the dots of the voice controlled smarthome. Think Siri / Now / Alexa + Smarthings / Homekit / Nest.
  2. Crowdsourced delivery will dominate. Postmates API and the like will compete with Uber eats, Amazon Prime Now, and consumers will open up to the idea of instant delivery of anything all the time.
  3. Personal drones will fail due to price. 2017 will be the year of the sub $300 reliable autonomous drone.
  4. Dedicated live streaming cameras will launch at end of 2016. Think Periscope without the phone. A mini GoPro that can live stream with low power requirements.
