Cobalt interconnects, though not sure how much they are warranted.

Also, EUV is not a 2017 innovation. You can either say it's decades old or not here yet.

Can we play?

In NAND I think QLC is more important than layers or capacity this year and , layers wise, Toshiba/WD should be already shipping 96 layers to retailers. In machine learning, the edge is the highlight now , not server- this shift towards the edge is important in the long run. In sensors, packaging, displays there is more activity than ever. AMD Ryzen is better than you think and creates real competition in PC SoCs, something we lacked for almost a decade. Tesla Model 3 got hundreds of thousands of pre-orders and that never happens. SpaceX reusing the first stage booster is a historic milestone. Synaptics' in-display optical fingerprint sensor opens up interesting possibilities for further sensor and display integration. RF based contactless wireless power getting through the FCC - Energous and Powercast. Blockchain is all the rage, there must be some interesting applications worth noting.
