The most interesting to me are the UVA-filtering lenses and the earth imaging technology. I think if further research allows the UVA-filtering lenses to be compatible with prescriptions, it could be immediately beneficial to the public at large. Additionally, I hope further developments with earth imaging technology can be more helpful in preparing the public for catastrophes like hurricanes and tsunamis.

Great stuff! I just wish the Eagle Eye sunglasses could be used with a prescription.

Information Week only had one important New Year's Resolution this year. '"No Slide Show Articles with out a prominent 'View-as-one-page' link." How's that working out for you so far?

The inflatable satellite communication system is pretty cool. It enables geosat communications from remote corners of the world and has apparently been used by the US military in Afghanistan. When inflated, the antenna "ball" is about 8 feet tall, but when deflated, it fits into a small suitcase that can be checked as airline luggage. And "Alien" fans take note -- Sigourney Weaver is featured speaker at the Hall of Fame dinner.
