Electronic nose - the capability of reproducing human senses using sensor arrays and pattern recognition systems. This technology, among other uses, can be used to detect cancer cells.  

E-textiles - fabrics that enable digital components (including smallcomputers), and electronics to be embedded in them. 

Solar panels on a yacht
Flexible electronics - technology for assembling electronic circuits by mounting electronic

devices on flexible plastic substrates. One example of this are flexible solar panels, on a yacht. 

Memristor - a passive component in electronics that changes its resistance depending on the current that flows through it. Can be used for creation of an artificial brain.

Artificial brain - software and hardware with cognitive abilities similar to those of the animal or human brain.  However Kurzweil prefers the more memorable term Strong AI. In his book The Singularity is Near he focuses on whole brain emulation using conventional computing machines as an approach to implementing artificial brains, and claims (on grounds of computer power continuing an exponential growth trend) that this could be done by 2025. Henry Markram, director of the Blue Brain project (which is attempting brain emulation), made a similar claim (2020) at the Oxford TED conference in 2009 (watch here).

Spintronics - an emerging technology exploiting both the intrinsic spin of the electron and its associated magnetic moment, in addition to its fundamental electronic charge, in solid-state devices.
