The implications go far beyond simple sensors taken in pill form for diagnosis. Very informative.

Shrinking medical devices will help to provide the advancements of modern technology to an aging population to access medical service both in and out of the hospital environment. It will be great if sensor generated data, of critical patient requiring frequent attention, is made available to doctor on their smart phones. This will help doctor to treat patient from anywhere and at anytime.

Great article.  I especially like the discussion on lower power.  As medical device sizes shrink, the demand for more mobility will increase which will then prompt the demand for low voltage and low power requirements for longer battery lives.

Excellent update.  The medical device market is definitely focusing on smaller, portable designs that need small size components and low power.  Good overview of sensor technology used in these applications.  Thanks.

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?
