There's a great list (1686 of them) of future inventions by sci-fi
authors at Technovelgy.com's Grab Bag:

If you haven't already read it I strongly recommend Charles Stross'
freely available Accelerando (http://www.accelerando.org/) - its
bursting at the seams with future interfaces and conceptual technology
for human enrichment.

Yep - another big fan of sci-fi fan stores here.
