    New tech domains are always of interest to me providing, demand is predicted to be there and supply can be provided across a spectrum of suppliers. And I can get related .com domains. I mentioned in another thread about a subject. (undisclosed) that's been a close interest of mine for probably a year or two now. Of course it would be on others target lists also - but the BBC links and discussions are a nice read

    the BBC have put it on there Tech headlines tonight.. After apple have gone
    public.

    Of course it's nothing new - but it was always the watch (or strap/ band to the Yanks) that was my focus of attention.

    I think smart watches and morph phones are the future for telecommunications but saying that phones now have bigger screens than they did 10 years ago, people seem to like to a big screen.

    The phone that has a battery which lasts 15 years sounds good but if the wireless electricity network ever evolves then they'll be no need for it, and as for phones which can make emergency calls without a sim, I had a phone a few years ago which could do that, I used it for a while as a sort of computer with no sim in it and remember everytime I switched it on it said no sim card detected - emergency calls only.

    I registered wirelesstvs on .co.uk 2 years ago.

    the screen and power source will always be dictator, so watches will only be the link initially. Watch out for the future of foldable screens though.

    The nice thing about the watch technology - it has fairly easy constant sunlight as ready source. providing the wearer 'plays the game' :cool:

    A few years from now.- No more "where's my fu#king mobile"

    Have you been able to sell many of the "new tech" domains you've regged?

    I used to reg them but don't anymore, as I have found them hard to sell. The tech companies tend to go for product names / brand names, and don't seem to be interested in the generic.

    I've always gone for the shortest "brandable" type domains in the main (com only but, clearly subject focused, even for the non-tech) - yes, and that it has looked after me for 6 years.

    You'll be surprised how many interested parties latch on to the same 'word play' (i'm only talking a couple for each domain in the main but, that is all you need)

    For this instance - I'll take you back to Touchscreens - it wasn't hard to identify this as a forward input even back in the year 2000 - Sure the technology wasn't there (even flat screens were a novelty) but, this gets developed due to 'perceived' user demands.

    The word 'Touch' has served me well. Now, back many years ago relate it to the 'perceived' future markets - The who, what's and whys (don't forget we are thinking at least a couple of years ahead of any products)

    flexible-working and Tracking concepts also proved meaningful, amongst one or two others. (but again there to be seen, particularly tracking)

    I wouldn't give you specifics without permission - and as far as I know, I'm only aware of one sale reaching DNJournal

    I put it on Sedo but only had a few visits and no interest but then I do have it at a fixed price of 3k so maybe they lost interest at the price ?

    Touchscreentechnology.com still mine after 11 years (nobody asked for that generic)- And of course way past its sell by date now . (I do/did dabble with generics)

    The word 'Wireless' equally died a death many moons ago -sorry to say doodlebug- doubt you'd find a buyer at £30.

    That's unless targeting 220v wirelessly becomes a reality

    Picked up GNSStracking.com on the drop last week in the hope the term will supercede GPS once other navigation systems come into play.

    New tech is interesting to follow but I'd only pick up domains that I would assume would become top tier if the tech became mainstream.

    Smart watches that's quite useful although I think It may increase our over reliance on smartphones already.

    Bailey have you had any success with new tech domains?

    It's all I have ever relied on really. Taking the 'concepts' of new technology developments and then going for the shortest pairing (always word pairs) that fit the market. As I've mentioned before I do look for the "Word art" ie, instant recognition, word-balance (equal number of letters, shorter the better), no confusables - unless they make a pretty pattern (no kidding - you'll be surprised how lettering can make for a great logo) Lettering that makes natural -"stop-points" between words. (letters that don't normally fall together) Amongst other points

    Honestly it's all great fun. And probably explains why most of my domain sales end up with agencies in the States.

    Opps forgot to mention .com only. for this type of market

    I will add

    The trouble with the "descriptive domains" your near enough all ways to late for the .com these days even if your ten years ahead of the market. But, the market will look how to portray those products - that's my market

    I was tempted by some FTR .com domains i looked up after reading on BBC yesterday about the mineral mining they plan to carry out on the moon in the near future. Do you think it would be worth my while investing / registering? I found some decent terms.

    No No No, there will be only one or two contracts, domains need public appeal, and there lies the Corporate appeal (well their advertising agencies anyway)

    Subject association and Subject interest are two whole different ball games, hence people getting fruitlessly involved in all sorts of worthless tangents when it comes to domains

    Point taken, that makes sense. I'd never consider them in .co.uk for that reason, i've only dabbled with .com's a little so still adjusting to how i approach them. Thanks!

    I have NearFieldPayment dot com, been regged since 2008. Later this year 100 million Near Field Payment enabled devices are expected to launch.

    Thanks for the explanation, will have to consider that more often. I think my small trial into this area has been more mechanical looking for what I thought would be key terms which is why I've had little luck finding the domains and no success in actually selling them.

    I must add it is interesting and quite fun looking into future tech

    We've got TerabitEthernet.com which is along the same sort of lines, I guess. Been waiting 10 years for the technology to catch up, and it's just about getting there.
