Wearable fundraising, smart bras, e-Government and ambient Bluetooth consumer messaging all set to trend in 2014 according to Mindshare.
Digital technology will continue to provide new connections, revenue streams and communications channels for brands, consumers, charities and businesses according to leading global media agency network, Mindshare.

Next year is set to be the year of the ‘internet of ‘weird' things'.
