Electric Sky
Some sort of wizardry allows new highly spare arrays for RF power beaming, for medium ranges (looking at 1000km or less), which causes beam refocusing. All solid state, looking at 915MHz UHF.

Heatworks | Reinventing the way the world heats and uses water – MyHeatworks.com
So they are directly running electricity through the water, via a dynamically controlled array of graphite electrodes to manage the resistance in the circuit, to ohmicly heat the water on demand. They have guard ground electrodes to keep the thing from electrocuting you downstream.

MatterShift
Programmable CNT based separation filters, possible basis for molecular manufacturing. At least it seems to deal with gas/liquids easily enough in theory for basic molecular synthesis of simple compounds. So could go from stripping CO2 and water from the atmosphere to make simple synthetic fuels like ethanol

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?)

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.

:: University of Southampton
New tricks to get fiber lasers working together in concert, with high wavelength sync. With pulse fiber lasers, the potential exists to create very high performance laser particle accelerators, with lengths measured in cm, not km. Of course, this has potential for other applications involving high power and duration lasers.

The Rolling Sunlight: Solar Power on Wheels | Greenpeace
Greenpeace apparently made a truck running on biodiesel 10 years ago with a solar array/battery storage configuration, to provide portable power to disaster areas. It's currently deployed in Rockaway after Hurricane Sandy. Interesting trick, the array is made of two panels covering the box roof at an angle to the right, one sliding out to the right closer to the ground to fully deploy the array. So, park the truck so the right hand side faces due south to setup. No easy way to adjust the angle as far as I can see, which would be the most immediate needed improvement. More interesting improvement is a flat pack mount to go on top of a box truck roof, which can have adjustable tilt from flat to 45 degrees, and one or two slide out panels to increase area.

Aberration-Free Ultrathin Flat Lenses and Axicons at Telecom Wavelengths Based on Plasmonic Metasurfaces - Nano Letters (ACS Publications)
New trick, using gold nanoantennas embedded in thin film silicon to turn a flat sheet into a near diffraction limited optical lens. Wide bandwidth too. Applicable for IR. Usable for large aperture beam expanders for a long range laser? But the demo seems to be a 1cm lens, and they are only seeing 1-10% efficiency.
