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".

Visualization and virtual reality tools allow design engineers to build virtual prototypes that can be manipulated collaboratively. You can swap out materials and store data within the file.
Being in an incubator can be analogous to shopping in a “big box retailer.” You can find many things you need under one roof along with moral support to sustain and move your startup to a successful launch.
Scientists at four major universities in Europe have released a joint paper describing the use of light to put active materials into motion and to control that motion, producing lifelike mechanisms that may or may not contain living organisms, but can produce useful work.
Autodesk and Siemens PLM have reached an agreement to create seamless integration between their design software files.
Researchers have developed a lightweight, solar-energy-harvesting mesh of batteries that stretches, making it well-suited to wearable tech.
