Greg don't assume you need to move the model over the internet.  These solutions do not move the data the way you would think.  The amount of data that is transferred is very small, requiring only a 1Mbit connection speed.

Large Assemblies, Complex Surfaces and Real Time Computing

In theory this sounds good.  However, until the bandwidth of internet connection dramatically improves, I don't see how we can collaboratively achieve 'real-time' computing solutions on CAD files with very large assemblies and/or highly complex surfaces.  My dedicated, high-powered workstation is already too slow for these types of files, so even a 'high-speed' internet connection using today's technology would be even slower.

Perhaps down the road, internet speeds will be fast enough for this to be reasonably effective...

I'm strugling to see how this is different from some of the Building Information Modeling tools that have been around for over 10 years. I realize that they are not all SAAS but they do sometimes, but not always, work off a  common model in the "cloud".

Advertised as the "Most Powerful Tablet Under $100," the Kindle Fire HD 6 was too tempting for the team at iFixit to pass up. Join us to find out if inexpensive means cheap, irreparable, or just down right economical. It's teardown time!
The first photos made with a 3D-printed telescope are here and they're not as fuzzy as you might expect. A team from the University of Sheffield beat NASA to the goal. The photos of the Moon were made with a reflecting telescope that cost the research team £100 to make (about $161 US).
At Medical Design & Manufacturing Midwest, Joe Wascow told Design News how Optimal Design prototyped a machine that captures the wing-beat of a duck.
The increased adoption of wireless technology for mission-critical applications has revved up the global market for dynamic electronic general purpose (GP) test equipment. As the link between cloud networks and devices -- smartphones, tablets, and notebooks -- results in more complex devices under test, the demand for radio frequency test equipment is starting to intensify.
Much of the research on lithium-ion batteries is focused on how to make the batteries charge more quickly and last longer than they currently do, work that would significantly improve the experience of mobile device users, as well EV and hybrid car drivers. Researchers in Singapore have come up with what seems like the best solution so far -- a battery that can recharge itself in mere minutes and has a potential lifespan of 20 years.
