Technological products tend to disappoint us in most cases after we’ve used them; a part of it is due to the marketing. The videos showing carefree and attractive people showcasing their mobile phones at nightclubs make us get all excited about the upcoming gadget. Then after actual usage of the product, the let down process starts. For example, Google Glass looks like it is a revolutionary gadget, but it is much lesser than our expectations. Future gadgets are still the golden ideas yet to be tainted by imperfections. The upcoming gadgets shine in our imaginations since they are still unreleased and yet to be tested. They are what our hope rests on, until we actually start using them. Here are some of the products of future that are full of high promises:
