Dexmo Gloves — An exoskeleton to let you physically touch the virtual world. Not for consumers, but still a taste of the future.
Future Stable Present Unstable — one of the successful, or perhaps most helpful, outcomes of a speculative artefact is that it makes the future stable and the present unstable. In communicating to a wider audience a potential, possible, or plausible condition, a future artefact should allow you to see a glimpse into that particular condition while disrupting your view of the condition you are currently in, and in that, there is a delicate balance.

Simit — a new programming language that makes it easy to compute on sparse systems using linear algebra. Makes many simulations much easier to write and more efficient to compute. From a writeup, In experiments, simulations written in the language were dozens or even hundreds of times as fast as those written in existing simulation languages. But they required only one-tenth as much code as meticulously hand-optimized simulations that could achieve similar execution speeds.
