2009: what's in store in the technology field

1) Pico technology. After micro, nano, pico (one trillionth of a meter) comes into the picture.
The Transmission Electron Aberration-corrected Microscope is expected for 2009.

2) T-rays. Following x-rays, but different since no ionizing, not producing cancer risk, they can be used for security screening or medical applications.

3) Hydrogel Tissues.
They will replace bones, vessels and organs supporting the growth of new tissue.
They are currently undergoing clinical trial.

4) Hale UAVs
Planes that fly without a pilot for as long as five years without landing.
Could replace satellites.

5) Fuel economy.
It will come with low-rolling resistance tires.

6) Best energy usage
Just one third of the energy consumed by your automobile is used to move you forward, the rest is wasted.
Thermoelectric energy scavenging is the way to the optimal use of energy.
This is going to be applied also on home gas heating systems.

7) Energy storage
This is the answer to intelligent use of alternative energy produced for example with the wind.
