As 2015 fades into memory and 2016 dawns, a new trend set to occupy the tech world with CES 2016 in progress in Las Vegas. There are few questions still unanswered like what will dominate the landscape as 2016 moves forward? Will tablets replace laptops? Can wearables break the shackles and occupy a market share? Does Internet of Things finally becomes more mainstream? Will 3D Printers becomes more cheaper and accessible?

The next 12 month are exciting to watch unfold, with that in mind, we have chosen top 5 technologies which we feel if join together will shape the larger picture of what technology would be in 2016.

1. Virtual Reality (VR)

There will be more than 40 virtual or augmented-reality kiosks at this year CES pitching an array of devices, experiences and services. All these tech are expected to turn immersive computing for your face from "future tech" to present tech in 2016.

Given the amount of investment by big giants like Google, Facebook, Sony and many more, Virtual Reality all set to take off in 2016. Three big products which includes Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and Sony VR headset for PS4 are expected to launch in first quarter of this year.

VR gained much prominence last year when Facebook acquired virtual reality startup Oculus Rift for US$2.1 billion and Microsoft ambitious HoloLens project provided more traction to the industry after that.

However, there are major challenges like unpleasant side effects due to VR, and many more yet to be addressed, but it's safe to say that VR will be a much talk about technology in 2016.

Tip: To taste some magic, if you're a Samsung smartphone user, you can get $100 Gear VR and if you're an iPhone user, you can try $20 Google Cardboard.
