I agree with you on that, which means that concerning electronics,the future is always here even though it might unfold bit by bit.

As cool as these devices sound, there is a downside to engineering for the sake of engineering. Companies used to have the luxury of inventing becuase it was challenging and fun. We'd all like to see those days again, but I think utility and ROI will continue to be driving forces behind the development of electronics.

There are two types of R&Ds, one for enhancing the existing system and the other for new products. In both cases extensive study and investments are required. But now a day’s most of the companies are showing more interest in adding an ‘x’ factor to the existing popular devices. This will help them to reduce investments and a better mileage in return.

I think that most people don't realize how much of these "futuristic" products are already out there. These items are introduced one at a time and slowly integrated into society, so most people just take it for granted.

I agree, R&D is an important factor and regular surveys need to be conducted to get insight on the technologies that will have an impact in the future. Based on the survey results enterprises can divide the R&D budgets to different research projects.

you are right, that is because no manufacturer want to be left behind.They all want to be relevant in the future and to the future.

I think the biggest trend in many of different product segments is the connectvity part. Now all the devices want to connect and talk to other devices prefereably through wireless nerworks. So I believe there will much more products in the future embedded with technologies like Zigbee and low power blue tooth.
