Hot from SxSW – 5 tech trends

Written by Jason Anderson


SxSW (South by South West) - the highly influential interactive and music festival that happens each year in Austin, TX - has just finished. This is the festival where things like Twitter and Google Glass were introduced at, so it's a technical bellwether of what's to come.

Running through the thousands of presentations that happened during the week-long interactive part of the festival, there were five very clear trends for technology for the remainder of this year:

2. Wearables, health and social-good

3. Robotics

4. Transportation

5. Beacons and the Internet of Things. Again.
