Is This The Tech to Invest In?
By: Brett Neuling
You probably heard this: Billionaire Elon Musk came up with this seemingly crazy idea that all his Tesla electric cars will soon be self-driving.
Yes, Musk is a genuine genius and I'm a huge believer in where Tesla is steering the entire auto industry.
But I have never seen so many people get so excited about a single peach while ignoring the entire orchard.
You see, while all of the talking heads in the media go on and on about Tesla and its potential, they're not telling you the really BIG story behind it all. It's the giant prize that Tesla and hundreds of other companies are chasing.
And before you ask, no… it's not self-driving cars. Self-driving cars could be almost insignificant compared to this new technology.
Consider that the global self-driving market is supposed to reach US$42 billion by 2025, according to Boston Consulting Group.
But the tech I'm talking about? McKinsey and Co. believes it will be a US$19.9 trillion market.
That's 452 times bigger than self-driving cars!
And as huge as that number is, consulting firm Accenture says 87% of consumers don't even understand what this technology is.
What an opportunity that presents!
It's going to be so big that companies like Cisco and Intel are budgeting billions to be a part of it.
But again, 87% of consumers don't yet understand what it is. 7 out of 8 people you see walking down the street are missing out.
And we believe that presents a huge opportunity for us individual investors. We're not market timers here at The Motley Fool, but we certainly don't mind investing before the crowd catches on!
And that crowd may be just around the corner…
You see, there is a special technology that some are calling "bigger than the internet." In fact, it's the technology that is behind much of what Amazon does.
The masses will soon be catching on as this tech gets more and more popular. And I suspect when they do, they'll be focusing on obvious names… like Cisco and Intel… as they look for their share of the pie.
But we at The Motley Fool have put together a guide about three companies we think could potentially harness this transformational power, and one of them in particular is a company we've strongly recommended to investors for a long time..
The good news is that you can find out all about these companies and this extraordinary technology today.

And trust us… you are going to want to see this report before you invest $1 in any tech company right now.
Think about how many amazing technologies you've watched soar to new heights while you kick yourself, thinking, "I wish I'd bought in on that."
Don't let that happen again. This time, it should be your family telling you, "I can't believe you knew about that so early on."
