Good point, Chuck. LEDs are making a huge impact on holiday decorations. It's also good to know the LEDs are not eating up as much power.

Internet cuts out, always have a local storage option. Almost 100% secure in gathering the data. However, power demands increase slightly, I am sure.

Completely agree with Cabe.  As the concept of the internet of things becomes even more a reality, sensors and communitating with them is key for data acquisition as well as maintenance and more.  Optimizing standards will make the effort to bring all online more efficiently and keep them online as well.  And it's across multiple markets and application areas.  IEEE and the task groups have their work cut out for them.

When I attended Sensor-Expo in Chicago this past year, 2012, I realized wireless sensing will soon be standard. It is time to hop aboard that bus, immediately. Remote data aquisition and management were the dreams of the past, now a complete reality. Isn't that how we can tour and test the surface of Mars? It only makes sense to do it here too.

Good point, Rob. Weatherized designs (for temperature and moisture) are making it possible for LEDs to take over the holiday lights market right now.

Nice article, Lauren. It's good to see these advances in LEDs. Weatherized LEDs just gives LEDs more credibility -- as well as useability.

Latest Analysis
If you’ve noticed the recent news about electric cars and batteries, then it’s easy to wonder about the continuing wisdom behind public subsidies for EVs.
A slew of announcements about new materials and design concepts for transportation have come out of several trade shows focusing on plastics, aircraft interiors, heavy trucks, and automotive engineering. A few more announcements have come independent of any trade shows, maybe just because it's spring.
A group of collaborators wants to recast MacGyver or a show similar to it with a female protagonist as part “The Next MacGyver” competition, in order to get young girls interested in STEM fields.
Biomimicry and 3D printing have come together in new swarming ant and butterfly robots that act very much like their insect counterparts, the inventions of German robotics firm Festo.
Samsung's Galaxy line of smartphones used to fare quite well in the repairability department, but last year's flagship S5 model took a tumble, scoring a meh-inducing 5/10. Will the newly redesigned S6 lead us back into star-studded territory, or will we sink further into the depths of a repairability black hole?
