Smart Devices of 2025

Brought to you by The Future Devices & Technologies Group

As electronic devices get smarter, they are helping us perform daily tasks more easily and saving us time and effort.

About the event

The smartphone has led this trend today and is truly a marvel of technology; these devices have connected us and allowed us to connect with each other and beyond like never before. They are not just a communication device, but a myriad of gadgets in each of our hands. On the other hand, advancements in electronics, sensors, communications technologies and software have enabled traditional devices such as watches, health monitors, fitness trackers, home appliances, hair stylers etc. with communication and decision-making capabilities which has spawned new form factors and given impetus to new verticals like smart homes, intelligent and smart cities, connected cars etc.

However, these devices are still far from perfect. Improvements in every aspect, complemented by greater advancements in technology, have the potential to create further revolutionary devices that will continue to significantly change our behaviour and way of thinking.

This inaugural event of the revamped ‘Future Devices and Technologies’ Group will explore radical ideas for the devices of the future and their impact on our lives.

Our SIG Champions would like to hear if you have a crazy idea or if you're developing an innovative, future-looking device that you would like to talk about at the event. Please email sophie.aldwinckle@cambridgewireless.co.uk
