Well, we're still here. We are not biting the dust as a species in a giant fireball as the Mayans (or whatever nervous pessimist who interpreted the end of the Mayan calendar) predicted. And that's a good thing -- and not just because we all get to, y'know, keep living and stuff.

It's also because life is about to get really awesome. We have a lot of future tech to look forward to and geek out over in the coming year. Here are some things that'll make the post-non-apocalypse world a little cooler.

1. 3D Printers
Yes. Printing actual things. In 3D. While the technology has been around for a while, get ready to have it become more of a presence in the tech world--and even in your own home. For an example of what a 3D printer can do, check out this sweet video of the MakerBot Replicator 2.

The 'wow' doesn't stop at building models. Imagine large scale printers that could print entire rooms or buildings, or medical printers that can build entire body parts (already happened) or even finer tissues. The future!

2. Car Tech
Little by little, our cars are getting ever so much closer to becoming K.I.T.T., and I, for one, am SO down for that. The Google Driverless Cars are becoming more of a thing as more cities make them street-legal. 2013 model consumer-grade vehicles are getting increasingly smarter, with cars like the 2013 Dodge Dart even providing you with a Wi-Fi hotspot, and other models even notifying you if you hang out too long once the car in front of you has moved ahead -- so necessary in our neck of the woods.
