Although we love them to pieces, eventually smart phones won't be the only way we communicate and spend our time. Scientists predict we might end up using neural networks to play candy crush, or we could spend all our time using smart eyewear. 

They still have a few issues to iron out, but there's a new reason that smart eyewear might be a good option - night vision! Google's just submitted a patent that suggests it's planning on adding the future at some point.

Seriously though, we're keen for anything to stop us tripping over stuff in the middle of the night.
