The year 2013 is done but it brought lots of technology innovations that will help us in the next years. Innovations led by education and knowledge make our lives easier. Here are some breakthrough products that marked the previous year:

1. Pebble watch. Pebble smartwatch introduced many people to the benefits of wearable technology. The Pebble’s e-paper display links to a smartphone via Bluetooth, allowing users to control their music, view text messages or tweets, and screen calls. And thanks to a software development kit, programmers can create apps to run on the watch. With just a twist of the wrist, a user gets a quick and stealthy peek at the wider world. Well also you have to pay around $150 as-well.

2. Seiki 50-Inch 4K TV. I am sure most of you have never heard of Seiki. Well it is a television company that offers a 4K TV for $1300! Major electronics manufacturers were planning to introduce similar-size ultra-HD (3840×2160) sets at prices around $5000 but Seiki beat them with no-frills TV that has no Internet connectivity and no 3D , just super –HD at a good price.

3. Thalmic Labs MYO. It turns human motion into digital control. However, the MYO is not confined to a room or a desktop. The bracelet uses a variety of motion-tracking sensors to measure the position and orientation of a user’s arm in space. It senses the electrical activity of muscles that corresponds to finger movements, allowing for complex gesture controls such as pinch, point and grasp.
