At this year’s Web Summit in Dublin, we asked tech leaders and luminaries to look into their crystal balls and tell us what they think will be the next big thing in tech for 2014.

We spoke to a wide range of visitors to the event, from superstar CEOs to start-up entrepreneurs, and some common concepts that appeared among their predictions were the surging popularity of wearable tech devices and the increasing impact of cloud and big data on all aspects of business and lifestyle.

Each one provides their own unique perspective, so click play to hear it straight from the mouths of Hailo CEO Jay Bregman, Evernote CEO Phil Libin, SoundCloud CTO and co-founder Eric Wahlforss, Box CEO and co-founder Aaron Levie, authors Robert Scoble and Shel Israel, Irish CEOs Pat Phelan and Gráinne Barron, 14-year-old developer Jordan Casey, seasoned tech veteran Liam Casey and many more.
