Moore's Law states that you could fit twice as many transistors on a computer chip every two years -- but many say this will soon come to an end. Engineers have been working around how to overcome the limitations of the modern computer chip, and some of the proposed solutions are straight out of science fiction!

Nanophotonics could preserve Moore's Law indefinitely, but are there any other technological trends that you think are in danger of plateauing? Let us know in the comments below!
