Self driving personal vehicles either having the smarts in the car or the smarts in the highway. I would not mind driving myself locally, but would love to hop on I95 and take a nap or read a book.

Self-driving cars.
I think it will be 20 years and not 10, but I am hoping.

Tourist avatars. 3-D PTZ cameras on wheeled bases that would range around limited areas in popular tourist destinations. You would rent time on them and be able to "visit" the area. I foresee a use where the end user interface would either be a complete application or physical system designed for intuitive ease of use. Purposes could include class field trips, "visits" to locations with invalid relatives and friends, and casual arm-chair tourism to dangerous areas.

If it looks and performs like it does in the video, it's pretty amazing looking.

This already exists. Electronic Fund Transfers are free at many banks.

Holograms of myself so that I can place one at work while I'm hiding out at the beach!
