JWT’s 100 Things to Watch in 2013

Future-gazing is a challenging exercise which highlights the evolutionary trends and visionary breakthroughs. The new year is a time that brings future-gazing into front and we usually see lot of new predictions. Ann Mac, Director of Trendspotting and his team at JWT Intelligence have produced a list of the 100 Things to Watch, which predict the ideas that could shape our world in 2013.

According To JWT, the list is based on research across sectors such as travel, technology, food, retail and sustainability and the list reflects the major developments bubbling up. Technology takes the spotlight once more with “appcessories,” digital ecosystems, flexible screens, and responsive Web design topping the list. Other top things to watch include new foods and ingredients like faux meat and chia seeds. There are emerging trends like quiet products, shopping hotels, mindful living, privacy etiquette, and adult playgrounds.

I reviewed the list and I can see these things clearly unfolding in the world:
Appcessories
Instant-Erase Apps
Medical Smartphones
Live-Streaming Life
Mobile-Optimized Goes Mainstream
NFC Tags
Online Groceries
Paperless Education
Passwords 2.0
Prime Time for Second Screen
Responsive Web Design
Social Media Hacks
Stress-Monitoring Apps
Tablet Shopping
User-Based Insurance
Tech-Enabled Farm-to-Fork
Biometric Authentication
Wireless Charging
Window Shopping
Data Scientists: The New Hotshots
Detoxifying Life
