Pedestrian navigation, anyone? Movea's data fusion solutions, which include data and processing models, engines, and ecosystem-enabling tools for rapid prototyping, development, and integration, may be just the thing for context-aware applications.

Creeped out? I agree Chuck. Yet Big Mother will find a welcome place in our lives if she saves time and makes daily tasks easier. I've been surprised by the acceptance of GPS in the form of a woman's voice. I find it annoying, but I've watched the acceptance -- a daily task made easier.

I suppose this was inevitable, given the power of MEMS. But I have a feeling that a lot of this contextual awareness will be wrong in many cases. I also suspect that some people will be creeped out by these capabilities, even when they're right.

As frustration builds while being forced to learn the new UI of yet another new Phone, Tablet or other electronic device, I see myself lying on the proverbial Brown Leather Couch, being analyzed be Dr. Freud.  As it turns out, I hated Big Mother. 

Rising irritations would naturally subside if She just quite trying to guess what I'm thinking, and nurture my own ability to help myself using the base technology.  I mean; stop trying to constantly improve things by complicating them.

It seems that gears have been around forever -- what could be new?
The use of ZNE technology buildings not only reduces cost and creates renewable energy, but it can give a boost to the economy. The implementation and execution will require a workforce, which means the result can be increased employment.
The use of CFD is more profound in automobile design because of the diverse physics involved. It can be used to optimize components for downsizing and reducing the environmental footprint while maintaining or improving operational efficiency.
A Detroit automaker was struggling with a semi-manual, labor-intensive parts receiving process. Workers had enter parts into a spreadsheet manually at a stationary workstation. This stopped the receiving process dead in its tracks. A better system was needed.
Pressure sensors can be used in a wide range of applications. It’s imperative that they’re suited for use in hazardous situations and are fully compliant with one of several protection standards.
