A look at the year-end review of nanotechnology developments at TechnologyReview showcases the mind-boggling developments in store for technology in the future.

From Nano-power cells to invisibility cloaks, there's a lot in store for the future. From the immediate feasibility perspective, its flexible electronics and tiny memory needs attention since these are more of a necessity to sustain the innovation in hardware.

Already this year started with the news of 500 GB mobile hard disks and terrabyte laptops, but the age of miniaturization still has many limits to cross.

Somewhere, in some lab clean and polished lay inventions that would blow our minds and change the course of human history overnight. As cool as they are and the affectation of their release; someone(s) is effected by this. Profit and marketing run everything. I wonder what's already been created, planned, and tested only to shelved because it unseats or undercuts and existing plan or invention. A good example of this is the automobile. It does make you wonder what else?
