Seven Hot Technologies

MIT Technology Review Says These seven technologies are about to make their way out of the lab, onto the market—and into our lives. Some of these technologies stem from new discoveries in basic science, but others spring from new twists on old materials and techniques, or even build on years of slow progress. They are all just making their way out of the lab, and their development is motivated by strong market demands or consumer needs.

They include Automatic speech translator,
Spinal-cord trauma treatment,
Blocking spam,
Miniature ultrasound device,
Chip-to-chip communications,
Streaming media and
Piezo fuel injection.
