Alex, This is exciting technology with many implications for the future. I heard that Sandia National Labs is doing work in this area and checked out their website. Readers might find their website of interest since it provides a good overview of areas of concentration: http://mems.sandia.gov/. Great stuff.
Sounds like a really robust program and definitely a hot topic for today's engineering applications. I'm still a little fuzzy on MEMS' exact role and some of the key design concerns so I'll look forward to lots of great reports and posts based on the discussions at the summit.
The company says it anticipates high-definition video for home security and other uses will be the next mature technology integrated into the IoT domain, hence the introduction of its MatrixCam devkit.
Siemens and Georgia Institute of Technology are partnering to address limitations in the current additive manufacturing design-to-production chain in an applied research project as part of the federally backed America Makes program.
Most of the new 3D printers and 3D printing technologies in this crop are breaking some boundaries, whether it's build volume-per-dollar ratios, multimaterials printing techniques, or new materials types.
