It's easy to see 3D printers and ultra-HD TVs growing in popularity just from the number of products currently on the market.

Rob, I am currently living it.  Actually, my wife is.  He friend's husband has a running shoe store.  We were all out together recently and I was the only one who was not waring a watch like device that tracked their physical activity.  It was wierd.

I also noticed that Freescale has a Cloud Connect product for the smallest ARM microcontroller, the M0+.  With this, assuming you have connectivity, your device can connect to the cloud and report data. 

This train is rolling and it is rolling fast.

In this new Design News feature, "How it Works," we’re starting off by examining the inner workings of the electronic cigarette. While e-cigarettes seemed like a gimmick just two or three years ago, they’re catching fire -- so to speak. Sales topped $1 billion last year and are set to hit $10 billion by 2017. Cigarette companies are fighting back by buying up e-cigarette manufacturers.
