O'Reilly Radar provides corporate clients with early insight into technologies that may either disrupt their business or provide new, high-growth markets. Our research services are based on O'Reilly's deep connections into early adopter communities (those innovators we call the "alpha geeks"), as well as data aggregated from a unique mix of internet-based trend indicators coupled with advanced analysis techniques.

Recent topics covered by our research team include the data web, ambient computing, multi-touch and other alternate user interfaces, the future of manufacturing, open source hardware, human enhancement, sensor networks, virtual worlds, open ID, and social networks.
