You can follow Google’s progress on Project Glass here.

Flexible Displays

Many large phone producers, such as Samsung, have been reported to launch smartphones with a flexible OLED displays. The flexible displays are said to be unbreakable thanks to a display made from a type of plastic instead of glass. The displays also will be able to conserve battery life, making it more energy-efficient than other models. With this new, durable technology, consumers will be able to extend the life of their phone. Samsung will be the first to release a phone with a flexible display in late 2012 or early 2013.

Wireless Charging

Basis Bands are already available for pre-order through the company website.

Memristor Technology

Memristors will change the computing industry forever. By using non-volatile memory, these chips will deliver faster speeds, lower energy consumption, and, eventually, smaller computers. The memristor is said to be the replacement of flash memory in computers by saving it’s current electronic state when turned off. The chip can remember a wide range of electronic states, which allows it to surpass the traditional on and off options on today’s computers. HP will be releasing the first chip in late 2013.
From a band that records all of your health information instantly to a bendable smartphone, 2013 promises to deliver exciting technology products that will change the way we live our lives.
