Z axis limitation

This seems like a great industrial product, until you see on the data sheet that the Z axis is limited to 600 Hz. You will need to mount two devices to truely get 3 axis, 2700 Hz performance.

changes coming in industrial sensors and control

Chuck, this type of advance can really change the way industrial sensors are designed.  In the past one might have used some sort of shaft encoder, while now other types of sensors might be of interest. 

As for the IoT, this is how it all starts.  Lots of digital data which is easily transmitted and saved.  Then you have to analyze it.

Here's a variety of views into the complex production processes at Santa's factory. Happy Holidays!
The Beam Store from Suitable Technologies is managed by remote workers from places as diverse as New York and Sydney, Australia. Employees attend to store visitors through Beam Smart Presence Systems (SPSs) from the company. The systems combine mobility and video conferencing and allow people to communicate directly from a remote location via a screen as well as move around as if they are actually in the room.
Thanks to 3D printing, some custom-made prosthetic limbs, and a Lego set, one lucky dog and a tortoise has learned new tricks.
An MIT research team has invented what they see as a solution to the need for biodegradable 3D-printable materials made from something besides petroleum-based sources: a water-based robotic additive extrusion method that makes objects from biodegradable hydrogel composites.
With Radio Shack on the ropes, let's take a memory trip through the highlights of Radio Shack products.
