Post What's your top 5 new technological products   Posted on: Sat Dec 11, 2004 11:33 pm
I have a few technological products of companies I'm waiting to see released/created, because it will give the world a lot of new posibilities or a lot nicer to live in.
Many of these new developments can be used in space, use technology that can help the development of space or is an activity in space :)

My personal top 5:

1) Microsoft Windows Longhorn and DirectX 10 (with the next generation 1 gig memory top 3D Cards) and the release version of Visual Studio 2005
(Cause I'm an addicted programmer :P, and those products combined will be litterly a very good and large change for personal computers)

2) Boeing 7E7 and Airbus A350 & A380
http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/business/4085631.stm
http://www.boeing.com/commercial/7e7/flash.html
http://www.airbus.com/product/a380_introduction.asp
http://www.airbus.com/product/a330_a340_comfort.asp

3) The Galileo satellite navigation system

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/science/nature/4085651.stm

4) Robotic environmental cars (I don't expect them to be revolutionairy that much, but still very nice to have one for private fun :)) and also more robot developments in general (as example: http://www.sony.net/SonyInfo/QRIO/top.html )
http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/technology/4082301.stm
(also see: http://www-1.expo2005.or.jp/en/ , if you haven't seen this site, it's really worth to read it in detail).
http://expo.toyota-g.com/index_en.html

5) Bigelow Aerospace Space Stations :)
http://www.bigelowaerospace.com/
http://www.space.com/news/businessmonday_040524.html
http://www.space.com/news/bigelow_update_041124.html

I'm intrested to see other people their top 5 products in development by companies that they are waiting for to see, have, use, or go to... :D

Five? I little bit difficult but I have some if I include universities, institutes, agencies or professors instead of companies.

1. Zeilinger's quantum communications
2. Ball's ballutes
3. NASA's nuclear spacecraft drive.
4. Bigelow's Nautilus
5. Nanocarbontube-cables as recently produced experimentally by scientists

Does That fit your criteria or should I list some others? I would have to think about it a while.

I think I can use it without any problem.

For you ? it's good anough :P,.. You're free to list what you want :) as long as it's "technological", I don't think I should play mister dictator over here :)
But it would be nice to have "url's" with number 1 and 2 for more information.

It was the fact that at least two items in my list don't be under development by companies because they are not yet fit to leave the laboratories of scientists - may be one step or more behind the development of technologies by private enterprises. :)

Mmm, lol. I don't mean new technology, but new ways that technology is being used. okay, it probably shouldnt be in te list as requested, but technology doesnt have to be new to have better applications ;)

nano-ITX > www.nano-itx.com > a motherboard with processor of just 12 x 12 cm!
