The term 'straintronics' refers to a new research direction in condensed matter physics in which strain engineering methods and strain-induced physical effects in solids are used to develop next generation devices for information, sensor and energy-saving technologies. This paper reviews the basic ideas of straintronics, examines its underlying effects, highlights its advantages over conventional electronics and identifies the problems it faces and fundamental constraints it is subject to. Special attention is given to the straintronics of magnetic and magnetoelectric materials as the most promising direction for radically reducing computational energy consumption. Specific examples are presented of how the principles of straintronics are applied practically in information and energy saving technologies as well as in sensor and microwave engineering.
