New Scale Technologies develops and manufactures custom precision motion systems for critical adjustments of optics in imaging devices and other micro positioning applications. They create disruptively small motion systems that enable design engineers to create smaller products which results in new levels of performance to phone cameras, medical devices. The UTAF piezoelectric lens actuator is one more addition to their list miniature devices.

I agree, Elizabeth. Actually, I find these innovations incredible. To see the advances being made on a micro technology scale - the lens being the limiting factor is amazing.

This technology is certainly very unique, especially with its ability to provide closed loop control and sensor inputs in such a small package.  Plus htting the price targets required for these applications. Very impressive.
