We won’t quite be living on Mars and communicating through telekinetic brain implants, but we will have the Apple Watch. Here’s what else we’re looking forward to next year, from the iPhone 6s to the world’s first eco cityMore
Yes, it will work alongside the iPhone 6 and allow you to take calls and receive Facebook messages on your wrist, but persistent rumours that the battery life will be more short-lived than this year’s S Club 7 reunion don’t fill us with confidence.
Then again, Apple have a great track record so far and the ability to tap into their tech through your watch might make this the smartwatch of the year. It’ll certainly be the most talked about.
Expected early 2015, from £220.00
The world’s first carbon neutral, zero waste and fully eco-friendly city is set to be completed in 2015, to the tune of $22 billion. Located just outside of Abu Dhabi, the city is entirely self-contained and employs a multitude of green technologies including the larges solar power plant in the Middle East, a hydrogen power plant and a number of wind farms.
Set to house 7,000 residents and twice that number of commuters, the city’s main industry will be the manufacture of environmentally friendly products. Oddly for an oil-producing country, cars are banned from the city with an emphasis on mass public transit. The final phase of the project is expected to be completed by 2025, when the city will house 50,000 green residents.
