Polymath: Beamed propulsion doable now, and with it space solar power.
microLED's have parallel but non-coherent output, which may be servicable for use as a light beam source for beamed propulsion, aka laser launch

Nuclear piston engine, using gaseous "fuel" and hydrogen gas moderator, with neutron reflector piston and cylinder. Uses piston top-dead-center compression effects and a "spark" (external neutron source, like an ADSR particle accelerator neutron spallation target, or some sort of cylinder wall embedded neutron source). Wonder if LiquidPiston reverse wankel would also work well here. Negative void coefficient is nice too.

Medical devices powered by the ear itself - MIT Media Relations
Tapping a biological "battery" current source in the ear to power microelectronics. Potential applications in implantable hearing aid amplifiers that are "self powered" and thus batteryless.

LaserMotive » About
Lasermotive trying to commercialize their power beaming technology with a move towards UAV remote power delivery. If an electric UAV can get power remotely, it cuts down substantially on the weight on onboard energy storage. One possible end result is LEO/GEO power satellites beaming power to military surveillance UAV's in remote areas (not useful for other applications since you have a giant laser from the sky shining on the UAV so it would be an easily identifiable target)
