Default New Tech at AGBT

I thought it might be useful to collate the bits and pieces about new platforms discussed during AGBT (Those that don't already have a thread), for those of us unlucky enough not to attended. Grabbing the info from various tweets listed at: http://pathogenomics.bham.ac.uk/blog...-day-2-tweets/

If any one at AGBT could supply additional information from the talks, that'd be appreciated or any links to blogs covering the tech.
