Nicely written article. I agree with most of the items mentioned, and look forward to watching them further evolve over the next year. I have had some personal experience with the wireless medical devices and can assure you they are not "ready for prime time". The large number of "communications" technologies and products should be a good indicator of what the next industry driver will be. I myself have been upgrading my communications technologies over the last year, and welcome the change. Lets all hope these set the stage for bringing all of us back to prosperity soon...

Much more interesting thing will be the applications derived out of these technologies. Who knows 3-D mobile display may open new war for gaming companies, or a total new domain of apps with gesture recognition. I always found, no matter how bright is technology, the application of technologies derive its popularity.

Yes, I agree with goafrit over there. While, the concept of ‘editors-pick’ is one popular way to go in these magazines, when it comes to engineering it has got to be different. There are many EE technologies out there and the published list does not do justice to many. When we have such a vibrant engineering community sharing our views, why not let the engineers chose what is it that will excel in 2011? Certainly, a voted result would be a better option when we go forward. True, it should be some work to organize a poll and distill out the ten best technologies from the point of view of EE Times editors. As it has been demonstrated over the years through the peer-review system of engineering publications, democracy is burdensome and a lot of trouble. But, it is worth the effort for the simple reason that we do not have a better system than consensus of the majority. Does anyone know of a better option than democracy?

Thanks for this article. I think the Touchscreen tabs advance 'consume only' model will become a big hit as we move forward. Some of it is currently being implemented, but I think it is still in its early stages. The others items on your list are good too. Some will not be implemented in 2011, but it will indeed receive attention. Good list.

Next time, let us vote for this list. Shortlist 30 and let us vote. That way we can bring insights. There are many technologies out there that we can propose. We need democracy on EETIMES please.

To @rajveer57: I am not sure that feedback from an audience would provide a better list, presumably EE Times expert body has more visibility than a regular reader although there is always some power im masses...but I think you could combine the two: EE Times could allow everyone to click on the trend that she/he thinks is the most important and we will see which of the ten would be the most popular...Kris

I find Geotagging real world a very useful social app. People would be able not to just tag for fun, but also, tag if they see an unsafe location, crime escene, city violatins, Amber alert, if they see a suspect, etc. Personal safety could be increased if one could tag the place were one just was robed, or even tag the person real life! Looks promising. C

Hi Colin, thanks for providing the background of how the technology topics were selected. So it looks like the readers are going see most of the articles and news around these topics in 2011? Also thanks for providing information on the bio-degradable organic substrates and printable electronics stuff. Looking forward to learn more about the advancement in that area.

It is a good list. But I a more useful view could be derived from feedback of a wider audience/readers.

Many comforts to us and maintaining,improving green of the earth are possible by technology. Most of the above features if it is embedded into the numerous types of appliances used by the society at a minimum added cost to the owners of the appliances then the technology is enjoyable. In my calculations to increse the business in Year 2011 most of the manufacturere are ready to introduce these innovating features into their products with minimum added cost

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
