  4. No. 4 Video-Capable SLRs The Nikon D90 and the Canon 5D Mark II not only capture top-notch still images, but let the photographer shoot high-definition videos as well.
  5. No. 5 The Memristor The quot;memristor,quot; or memory transistor will make it possible to develop computer systems that remember what's stored in memory when they are turned off.

  9. No. 9 Edible Chips Soon, tiny edible chips will track when patients take their pills (or don't) and monitor the effects of the drugs they're taking. Proteus, a California company, has created tiny chips out of silicon grains that, once swallowed, activate in the stomach.
  10. No. 10 Flexible Displays to be a reality Flexible displays could change the way we interact with the info-universe, creating new kinds of cellphones, portable computers, e-newspapers and electronic books.
