We will also be joining in conversations with the IEEE (the world’s largest technical professional association) Facebook page next week as they will be posting news from the CES (Consumer Electronics Show) and providing updates in the form of video interviews with IEEE experts about the top consumer electronics trends in 2012.
Our Technical Manager, Andy, also pointed out a few personal top items to keep an eye on;
- The increasing use of NFC as it becomes available in more mobile devices. This has many uses including sharing web addresses from posters or paying for items with a “wave” of your mobile.
- Glasses-free 3D TV which will be shown as CES.
- More mobile focused sites using frameworks such as JQuery Mobile, Kendo UI Mobile and responsive design.
- 4G mobile network
