Now that our calendars read 2014, it’s a good time to look back at the world of tech from 2013. Last year was all about wearables – from Google Glass to Galaxy Gear and beyond, we’re now interacting with technology in more ways than ever. That’s also led to a massive rise in the Quantified Self movement, as we now use technology every day to track what we eat, how well we sleep and how much we exercise. 2013 was a big year for screens, too, with smartphones getting bigger – like the awesomely massive Galaxy Note 3 – and tablets getting smaller and better – like the iPad mini with Retina display. It was also the biggest year for new video games in nearly a decade; Microsoft and Sony launched systems to compete with Nintendo’s Wii U, and companies like OUYA and Steam gave us consoles for our living rooms, too. With CES right around the corner, we’re about to get a big dose of what to look forward to this year. Buckle up.
