Technology innovation is relentless. Virtual reality is a good example of this, with the Oculus Rift, PlayStation VR, Apple VR and HTC’s Vive all due to hit shelves in 2016. Wearable technology has also seen a surge in progress over the past few years; from smartwatches and fitness trackers to energy-harvesting fabrics, smart contact lenses and other groundbreaking applications.
