To: Himanshu_Gupta: Agree, there is a big difference between nano device that has some unique properties due its nanoscale size and some other scaled down device like MOSFET which even in deep submicron regime still pretty much behaves the same as it was in the micro regime...Kris

Most of the technologies seems like directly coming out from the sci-fi world. Its good to know that what seems unimaginable for today is reality for tomorrow! Will surely be interested in reading/following/commenting more about new and interesting technologies of the future which will keep us young engineers motivated.

We are already in the nanoscale range in terms of size but i think most people confuse between quantum effect which are actual and true nanotechnology and the extension of the microtechnology to nano-world.

To MajestTEK: appreciate your comment, perhaps I am not informed...could you kindly point out any meaningful commercial applications of nanotechnology today? Kris

Our editors pooled their knowledge to come up with the Top 10 Emerging Technologies for 2011 list. Regarding bio-degrad, most of the progress today is toward better recycling, but with the advent of organic substrates and printable electronics the future will hold the possibility of full biodegradability.

Good to see that there are a couple of technological developments on energy management and energy storage, which might take place in 2011. Apart from those two, I am very much interested in watching out for the "fully bio-degradable electronics". Is there already any progress made so far on this technology - “fully bio-degradable electronics"? Also I am curious to know, based on what information, these top ten technology was highlighted in this article?

The idea is that mobile 3D, which will be glasses-free, will drive acceptance of 3D-TVs of every type.

This is EE times as an Electrical Engineering Times. Why are some people asking or mentioning technologies that are outside the field? Though other engineering disciplines are important, they are not to be deeply discussed in this newspaper and the focused should always be EE.

@iniewski: Nanotechnology for your information is already widely used in commercialization. Why is it that everyone assumes that anything nano has to do with microscopic robots or something like that. nanocarbon tubes are already used in several products. stop thinking that future is in future...its now and here start using it!

To @aktor: the predictions are for 2011...there is no way in my opinion that nanotechnology can commercialize anything on such a short time scale...Kris
