Shatterproof screens, 3D Touch, Wireless Charging, these are all features that can be found on some of our android/iphone devices. But over the years we have watched gimmicks come and go. We all remember the HTC 3D cameras, it went from flagship, to Virgin Mobile feature device, to gone in a matter of a few years. Of course some would argue the device was too soon for its time, others would argue that the technology predicated on the battle between 3D TVs and higher resolution displays, but at the end of the day all that matters is that it did not continue on. At the end of the day the market has spoken and the next gimmick up is virtual tech. Now virtual reality is not new at all. In fact Nintendo took a shot at it in the 90's with the Virtual Boy (Virtual Boy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia). Despite it failing to capture the market, virtual reality would continue to take another shot along the years, each time missing a piece of tech that could propel it to success. Here we are now where the market is primed for virtual tech to succeed. Just look how popular a game like Pokemon Go has become. It is a matter of time before we see other gaming companies take advantage of the tech. Shatterproof screens could really become the wave of the future if they could find a way to do it right. Who like seeing their precious screen go from beautiful to spiderweb in a matter of seconds? Yeah it would be wise to put at least a $10 case and a $15 cheap glass screen protector on it for protection. But there are people who like the feel of their device without the bulk of a case. Why buy the nylon ballistic phone only to have to cover it with some cheap $10 plastic? It will be interesting to see if shatterproof screens will live on or become one and done. There are a number of features we can talk about from the fingerprint scanner, rumored iris scanner, lack of a 3.5 mm headphone jack, etc. I want to hear from you on what you hope will continue on, what you think will continue on, what you hope will die off, and what you think will die off in the tech world. Of course as @FoxKat said in another thread, it's interesting to read our opinions and compare them to actual results. So several years from now it will be interesting to see who ended up making the right predictions.
