CES 2015: Year Of The What?

Will 2015 be the Year of the Outrageously Expensive TV, or just another Year of Incremental Improvements in Technology?

Year of the recursive buzzword
Simple: yet another year of tech journalists and analysts arguing what this is the year of.

Yikes 8K TV?
Trying to wrap my mind around an 8K TV. I have a 55 inch led 3d hd etc in my house and at no time did ever tell my husband he was allowed to spend 8K on a TV. Past a certain resolution, what benefit can increasing it really do? I can already see each indivudual blade of grass Barcelona plays on as Messi scores a goal. I truly hope it becomes the year of dissapointing robots or of the next new wearble instead of the year of expensive and not even incrementally better TV's.

And I love the idea of the flying car, except that other people might be driving them. (I know too many people that have problems with right and left to trust them with up and down too.)

flying car
I would like to say up front that I don't get any money from this, but the flying car is already here. It's called the AeroMobil 3.0.
I saw a video and pics of it and it does fly. It looks pretty amazing in and out.
I'm not sure the Year Of What will be, but I'm always anxious and excited to see what's new on CES. Like a child on Christmas eve.
