I think the next thing, particularly for amateur antennas, is automatically
reconfigurable/self-adjusting antennas with more integration of the
radiating elements and the matching components.  We're creeping there with
SteppIR, and certainly auto-tuners have changed life for a lot of people,
and are now almost a standard piece of gear.

The next thing after that will be active phased arrays with multiple
transmitter/receiver chains.
