Gartner hyoe cycle

The Hype Cycle for Emerging Technologies report is the longest-running annual Hype Cycle, providing a cross-industry perspective on the technologies and trends that business strategists, chief innovation officers, R&D leaders, entrepreneurs, global market developers and emerging-technology teams should consider in developing emerging technology portfolios.

Major changes in the 2015 Hype Cycle for Emerging Technologies (see Figure 1) include the placement  of autonomous vehicles which have shifted from pre-peak to peak of the Hype Cycle. While autonomous vehicles {Ed note – this includes drones} are still embryonic, this movement still represents a significant advancement, with all major automotive companies putting autonomous vehicles
on their near-term roadmaps.

Similarly, the growing momentum (from post-trigger to pre-peak) in
connected-home solutions has introduced entirely new solutions and platforms enabled by new technology providers and
existing manufacturers.

This is a new one on me – seems like it might be a companion to Crossing the Chasm… it is certainly reminiscent of Geoffrey Moore’s approach. They offer up an explanation here.
Interesting that VR is already to the Slope of Enlightenment which sounds like a swell place to be with a pair of Oculus Rift glasses. It means is that companies are beginning to figure out how to use it to solve their business problems – typically launching pilots. And encouraged by having made it across the chasm tech companies are iterating and releasing new models.
