Fully Integrated Hybrid Silicon Two Dimensional Beam Scanner | Bowers
The underlying tech behind Strobe Inc.'s (now GM/Cruise) fancy pants chip LIDAR. Uses optical phased array for one dimensional scanning, and frequency variation through a prism lens to achieve scanning in the other dimension, rather than a full 2D optical phased array (so easier to make?)

Echodyne | Metamaterials-Based Radar Technology
Using metamaterials, they've built up sub-half wavelength antenna arrays for a phased array radar at small scale, with spacing so small that they don't need expensive/heavy/powerful phase shifters to beam steer.

The "well duh" moment when people realize phased array antennas using both metamaterials and semiconductor lithography techniques yield better manufacturing efficiency. Sorta wondered why diode controlled variable fractal antennas aren't also manufactured like chips too...

Breakthrough MicroSight Technology Improves Iron Sights « Daily Bulletin
This seems to have applications where one of the two things you want to see in focus is a relatively known distance from the lens/eye (in this case the forward blade of an iron sight). I wonder if this has any applications for conventional cameras as a simultaneous multifocal lens?
