Default A-Z list of future tech

I'm working on an RPG style thing with cards and I need an A-Z list of future technologies or inventions. I already have my own list but a lot of my ideas are too generic. For A I have Antimatter Rocket. I'm looking for out of the box, creative future ideas. Technobabble is somewhat acceptable but try not to get too silly. Thanks

Isn't this the fifth almost identical thread you've started on this same topic?
