Assistance needed in Emerging Technology

By SG-1 ·
Hi all,

I'm an IT student given the task off researching an innovative practical product using IT technology that is emerging at this time. Must be a viable product commercially available within 6 months, up to possibly 2 years.

I am time restricted with this project ... given a week to complete. So all assistance given ASAP with information, links/web sites will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks all,

"Juventino".

PS: I have searched the web, with little/no luck in the specificsas stated above.

Assistance needed in Emerging Technology

I won't do your project for you but I can point you at the places where emerging technologies come to light just before they hit the market:

Look for news reports and the reseach library (white papers) on computing industry news paper's websiteslike:
http://www.computerweekly.com
http://www.byte.com/
http://www.computing.co.uk (part of the VNU group)

Also track the headlines for the big contracts awarded that will take years to implement new ideas (e.g. last year Gillette have started using electronic tags instead of bar codes). Or look at websites for companies that are known for their intellectual property portfolio like IBM (http://www.ibm.com) and Philips (http://www.semiconductors.com) their big noise is often about a market they are just breaking into - others will follow.

There are many others but this should give you some ideas about where to start looking.
