The article focuses on the award given to Dr. Willard Boyle and Dr. George Smith by the National Academy of Engineering's Charles Stark Draper Prize on their invention of the charge-coupled device (CCD) in the U.S. One of the challenges for Smith and Boyle was creating a semiconductor memory for computers and development of technology for video telephone service. On the other hand, the national identification card enhances national security and guard against illegal immigrants.
