Nice list. Still, in my obviously biased view (as an engineer and ST flack), you're giving short-shrift to FD-SOI, which is faster, simpler and cooler--and BTW a finalist for top Energy Technology in the ACE Awards.
FD-SOI's only disadvantage as a sub-30nm process technology is that it isn't being pushed by the industry's 600-lb gorilla.
And what about us software guys? ;-) My personal hot technology are user interfaces with gesture control, especially in the industrial context. I believe, we will see soon very innovative control systems for robots, for example. But my own 3D printer would be nice, too.
The 100% in my question above was assumed to be visible but I'm not sure if 'illumination' would right word. By definition, 100% efficiency would reflect NO light.
You might say 'black' would be its color but 'invisible' might be closer to a correct answer, sort of a 'black hole' of sorts.
Replay available now: A handful of emerging network technologies are competing to be the preferred wide-area connection for the Internet of Things. All claim lower costs and power use than cellular but none have wide deployment yet. Listen in as proponents of leading contenders make their case to be the metro or national IoT network of the future. Rick Merritt, EE Times Silicon Valley Bureau Chief, moderators this discussion.
