Another year end type feature. This one from Popular Mechanics is not a look back but a look forward to important technology concepts for next year. Many of them will (or at least could) have a direct impact on dentistry and the technology we use every day. # 6 is osseointegration, yes the same ossesointegration we have used in dentistry for over 25 years.

From DNA origami to osseointegration, here are the big ideas that will make headlines next year. Get to know them now, before you touch a piezoelectric display or buy your first ultracapacitor. Check out our predictions from last year for 2009 here
