 I agree there were several left off of the list but I'm sure each technology thinks it's the "next big thing".   We live in fascinating times as far as technology goes.  I would love to get in a time machine and flash forward 50 years.  (I will say a well designed time machine) I'll bet we would not recognize the technology thought to be commonplace.    I know there are truly fascinating things happening in the biomedical engineering fields that will not only save lives but extend lives.  Exciting times.

Nancy Golden, To get involve with UAV development is a matter of ordering a quadcopter kit and building it. UAV applications are endless as well as the research in non-operator flight controls and teleoperations with smartphones is just the tip of the iceberg in this scientific arena. A group of Capstone Students here at the Madison, AL ITT Tech campus are building a quadcopter from scratch using an Arduino as the brains for their UAV. Pretty impressive stuff they've built. Also, here's a link to Parallax Elev-8 Quadcopter kit for an additional reference.http://www.parallax.com/StoreSearchResults/tabid/768/txtSearch/Quadcopter/List/0/SortField/4/ProductID/799/Default.aspx

Charles, Very good point about the electronics exploding. Seems like a simple experiment to perform. Do you have a microwave to donate for the purpose of scientific elightenment?

The promise of the Internet of Things (IoT) is that devices, gadgets, and appliances we use every day will be able to communicate with one another. This potential is not limited to household items or smartphones, but also things we find in our yard and garden, as evidenced by a recent challenge from the element14 design community.
Researchers have developed a new flexible fabric that integrates both movement and sensors, introducing new potential for technology-embedded clothing and soft robots.
If you didn't realize that PowerPoint presentations are inherently hilarious, you have to see Don McMillan take one apart. McMillan -- aka the Technically Funny Comic -- worked for 10 years as an engineer before he switched to stand-up comedy.
The first Tacoma Narrows Bridge was a Washington State suspension bridge that opened in 1940 and spanned the Tacoma Narrows strait of Puget Sound between Tacoma and the Kitsap Peninsula. It opened to traffic on July 1, 1940, and dramatically collapsed into Puget Sound on November 7, just four months after it opened.
