Mobile 3-D, Solar Fuel Top MIT's Emerging Tech List

Every year the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Technology Review chooses 10 areas of emerging tech most likely to make an impact in our lives.

This year's list includes things we're already seeing (Real-Time Search, Social TV) as well as more futuristic concepts like concrete that can help combat carbon emissions and mobile phones with 3-D displays.

You can see the full MIT list here and browse (at the bottom of the page) a list of past predictions (some of the older lists require a subscription or alumni code).
