The future of computing lies in Augmented Reality.  This entails a wearable device which lets a person  see virtual elements layered on top of the real world.  The one company which is already in the thick of things in this world is Microsoft.  It has the device Hololens already in development edition.  Developers can partner with Microsoft to create applications for Hololens (can apply here).
