    In the next 10-15 years I think three things will shape consumer computing:

    1. Wearable computing
    2. Context awareness
    3. Augmented reality

    All of these things are possible now, but in the next few years will be leveraged better.

    If I had any money, I'd be putting it into these.
    PHP Code:
    $s = new signature();
    $s->sarcasm()->intellect()->font('Courier New')->display();

    I'm inclined to agree with Steve, particularly on the wearable computing front and context awareness.

    Of course, the *first* thing I expect to see is a cheap, consumer level product supported by adverts being spammed at you by walking into range of a small device in store front windows!
