NO RATINGS
 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?
