Yes, Greg, I didn't know a lot about this technology when I was researching this story but I found it really interesting what's possible with motion control and robotics because of the smaller size and footprint. I think this will especially be beneficial to medical applications.

Very impressed at the level in which this technology can be scaled down in size.  It will be interesting to see how small the next generation of products will be.
