Rich, considering all the automation opportunities that these afford it is a very interesting set of products.  Minaturizing anything open up more application areas, as we have seen with computing technology.

I've taken many, many industrial plant tours over the past 25 years where I've seen countless big honkin' motors, so I'm intrigued when I see a motor that's 8 mm in diameter. But adding a gearhead to it is downright mind-boggling for me.

It would have been great if they showed them in actual use instead of just holding them in their hands.

I agree, jhankwitz. I would love to see one of these motors operating in a robotic surgery application.
