KISTEP 10 Emerging Technologies 2010
 
 
Technology Details
Wearable Computer Wearable computer is a body-borne computer that is worn by the user under, with, or on top of clothing.

Wearable technology was initially applied in military uses, but can now be applied to various fields including fashion and logistics.

3D Display
Three dimensional displays enable users to experience and interact with virtual images, increasing effectiveness of information delivery.

The technology is currently used commercially in 3D movie theaters, and is expected to enter homes in the near future through glasses-free 3D displays and holographic TVs.


Nursing Helper Robot
The nursing helper robot responds to the user’s needs based on behavioral and facial recognition.

Equipped with artificial skin and tactile sensors, the nursing helper robot can work as mobility aids for patients, and assist in nursing.


Multi-purpose Vaccine
Multi-purpose vaccines prevent diseases caused by most variants of pathogenic bacteria and reduce the number of vaccinations a child receives.

Identifying safe and effective antigens, and ensuring the stability of the vaccine is important. The technology uses DNA vaccines that target DNA sequences common in widely ranging pathogens.

Gene Theraphy
Gene therapy involves the substitution of genes that cause diseases or insertion of therapeutic genes.

Prior to implementation, the discovery of target genes, designing of delivery systems, securing stability of gene expression, and relevant ethical issues need to be addressed.

Home Healthcare System
Home healthcare system is a healthcare service that collects biometric information at home and sends it to hospitals for diagnosis, and provides care in case of emergencies.

As a fundamental technology for aging society, the home healthcare system can provide preions for minor ailments or chronic conditions.

High Efficiency Portable Solar Battery
Portable energy supplies are becoming more and more important due to the scarcity of fossil fuels and the wide use of personal devices.

Personal devices, automobiles, and other related industries are expected to produce more than $100 billion market value in 2020.

Smart Nuclear Reactor
Demand for small and medium-sized nuclear reactors has been increasing in many countries where power grid capacity is low, and decentralized power supply is needed. The technology can also be used to desalinate seawater with nuclear energy.

The technology is expected to create a global market worth more than $70 billion by 2020.

Wireless Electric Power Transmission Technology
The technology enables transmission of electrical energy without the use of power plugs and outlets within limited distance. The technology can be applied for ubiquitous computing of electronic devices.

Prior to implementation, efficiency enhancement and size miniaturization of wireless transmitters are the issues that need to be addressed.


Eco-energy Zero Construction
Eco-energy zero buildings aim to achieve zero net energy consumption through the use of insulation, recycled building materials, renewable energy sources, and maximizing energy efficiency.

With introduction of regulations on gross final energy consumption, renovation of old houses to zero-energy buildings is also expected.
