Tech trends for 2014: what's in store this year?

Technology never stops moving, and 2014 is set to be no different. We've picked 10 industry areas that are sure to see innovation the likes of which just might revolutionise the way we live and work in the years ahead.

Tablets will get bigger - the iPad mini was just a phase. 3D printing could kickstart a new industrial age, with worldwide shipments of 3D printers expected to grow by 75% this year and then double in 2015. The internet of things could get its own network, as Ofcom investigates the possibility of handing over the old analogue TV channels for small, low-powered devices to communicate with each other.

Video will dominate the web as viewers continue the move to online for TV and radio. The days of the smashed-up smartphone could be up as manufacturers toughen their devices up using printing circuit boards that can be bonded to a resilient plastic body. IBM's Ask Watson app is going to make Siri look like an idiot, and the growth of wearable tech will continue - something advertisers will be taking a keen interest in. But some things are likely to remain unchanged: the smartphone's reign as the king of tech is set to continue in 2014.

Would you buy a bigger iPhone?
@namneet75 Usability kept aside, Apple's screen size has always been a turn-off!
@V511 I'm still on a 4S as the height increase of the 5 wasn't enough for me. I will wait until they do a decent size.
@SimSima_09 To some maybe, however most people prefer the iPhone because the screen size is the perfect fit to use with one hand.
