More advances for LEDs

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

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

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.

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.

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

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.
