George Mason University Professor Andrew Carle recently released the top "Nana" technologies for 2010. Carle, director of the university's Program in Assisted Living/Senior Housing Administration, coined the term "Nana" technology in 2004 to define the growing industry of microchip-based products for seniors.

This year, he singled out four: GlowCaps, Wellcore, DriveSharp and ActiveONE-Personal Assistance Locator.

GlowCaps are designed to replace the cap on standard prescription bottles. They provide light and sound reminders at programmed times.
