With a new year comes new technology and 2014 is set to see new gadgets and gizmos taking technology to the next level. Here are 10 products that we may see in 2014 which will capture the attention of young techno freaks in the country

Google Glass is already up for grabs to people on Google’s ‘Explorer Program’, with users’ friends and family pay more than £1,000 buy the device.

With its impressive features, including public transport information, impressively detailed mapping software and the ability to search the web while on the move, Glass certainly feels like it’s ready to make the leap.
Expect a high price and plenty of column inches about privacy fears when Google does finally give it the go ahead.
Apple iPad Pro
Apple’s iPad Air and iPad mini with retina display are still two of the most popular tablets around. But with Samsung snapping at its heels and Google plotting more new slates in 2014, the Cupertino company needs something to give it an edge. Step forward the iPad Pro.
Rumours in the last few months have said that the new device will have a large 12.9-inch screen, with better graphics and processor power. The name follows the same pattern as Apple’s MacBooks and is meant to make it easy to distinguish between the slim line Air and the powerful Pro.
Despite praise for its One smartphone, HTC’s had a tough 2013 being overshadowed by rivals Samsung and Apple.
HTC will be hoping its new product, codenamed the HTC M8, will give them stiffer competition.
Similar to the HTC One, it is due to have an aluminum, unibody design and an Ultra Pixel camera.
The screen is set to be a larger 5-inches, and it will have a speedier Qualcomm processor.
The M8 name is set to change too and it is expected that the phone will make an appearance at February’s Mobile World Congress bash.
Android tablet
he Japanese gaming giant is reportedly working on an Android tablet for release in 2014, although sadly for fans of Mario and Zelda, it’ll be for educational games only.
The idea, according to chatter on Twitter, is to appeal to young kids and capture that market in the new year.
Samsung Galaxy Round 2
Samsung’s flexible phone is already on sale in Korea and despite selling just 10,000 units, it’s still a device that’s worth getting excited about, especially as there are rumours that Samsung is planning a new version of the Galaxy Round for release later next year.
That means the device could be up for grabs to first adopters outside of the company’s home territory. Chances are it’ll keep the flexible side-to-side design which helps it stand out from rival LG’s G Flex, which curves from top to bottom.
Valve Steam Machines
Valve’s Steam platform has helped revolutionise PC gaming. And now the company is hoping to take on the might of the newly released Xbox One and PS4 with its Steam Machines. These set top boxes are essentially PCs running Valve’s own Steam OS, with access to hundreds of amazing titles at lower prices than top tier console titles. Prices will depend on the processing power and tech specs of each Steam Machine, but the aim is to offer better value than Microsoft and Sony’s expensive machines.
Nikon 1 V3
Nikon’s stunning 1 camera failed to sell, but 2014 could see a turnaround in its fortunes. The V3 edition of the Nikon 1 is due to appear at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas in January.
Insiders have suggested it’ll look like Nikon’s retro-style Coolpix P7800, with a proper flash hot shoe instead of the accessory port found on the current model.
Canon EOS M2
With Nikon likely to turn up in Vegas with a new mirrorless camera, Canon is likely to offer something similar. The EOS M2 will be the successor to the super sharp EOS M and will have impressive features and a cool, compact design.
The 20 megapixel sensor will be backed up by improved autofocus skills, with a launch expected at CES. Like Nikon’s effort, this will be a pricey solution for hardcore camera fanatics.
Apple iWatch
The much talked about Apple iWatch is set for an autumn 2014 release date.
The wearable device is believed to use a flexible display, with fitness-focused features coming preloaded. Battery life will be boosted by utilising low-powered Blue Tooth, allowing the iWatch to connect to an iPhone and hoover up info such as emails, texts and app notifications. It is expected to be a more fully realised version of Samsung’s disappointing Galaxy Gear.
Samsung Galaxy S5
The new Samsung flagship phone has been talked about for weeks, with stories emerging on a seemingly daily basis. Word is that Samsung will reveal the device as soon as February, earlier than last year’s S4 which got the full-on launch event treatment in March. It’s believed to pack a metal chassis, 5-inch screen and Android KitKat, as well as a 16 megapixel camera and brighter display. Being Samsung, a cheaper plastic model is also being lined up.
