The current boom that I'm captivated by is the bluetooth, radio and wi-fi pairing of devices for intelligent networks of complimentary computers performing single functions. Apple in particular has set the stage for a broad range of complimentary devices and programs offered by entrepreneurs and inventors. As the iOS advances with multiple Apple devices being able to sync seamlessly across device types, application developers have been able to break free of hard-wired connections to enable intelligent peered-device interactivity.
In the coming years we'll be able to release advanced gesture tracking and haptic (touch) feedback peripherals in the open marketplaces that Apple has provided us. (Android I'm sure will follow. For now Android is leading in the RFID space, but due to their Windows-like distribution strategy, consistency of device interaction across multiple hardware distributors is more complex than iOS.) There are a range of options in networking devices for complex application functionality along a range of combinations: chip to phone, phone to tablet, tablet to computer and peered like devices (iPod-to-iPod, iPhone-to-iPhone, iPad-to-iPad).
