Each year, Technology Review publishes its list of 10 emerging technologies that its editors believe will be particularly important over the next few years. This is work ready to emerge from the lab, in a broad range of areas: energy, computer hardware and software, biological imaging, and more. Two of the technologies–cellulolytic enzymes and atomic magnetometers–are efforts by leading scientists to solve critical problems, while five–surprise modeling, connectomics, probabilistic CMOS, reality mining, and offline Web applications–represent whole new ways of looking at problems. And three–graphene transistors, nanoradio, and wireless power–are amazing feats of engineering that have created something entirely new.
