IXC Tech Radar© game

Our innovation specialists and creative technologists have picked ten innovative technologies, which they believe we will be seeing much more of in the future. All you have to do is place the technologies on the IXC Tech Radar© where you feel the Technology Maturity meets the Impact of the product. 

The Technology Maturity score depends upon how developed you believe the technology is, is it still at the research stage or have you seen it in products available today? For example, is it still at the research stage (e.g. 1) or have you seen it in products available today (e.g. Technology Maturity 9 = very mature)

The Impact score is graded on how much you feel this technology will impact the lives of those of us living in the UK over the next 5 years, will the technology be ingrained in our everyday lives by 2017 (e.g. Impact 10 = high impact) or will we have to wait another 20 years before we feel the benefit? (e.g. Impact = 1)?
