@Netteligent: HP Labs is indeed working on the demo of an all optical bus where at each mirroring intersection, a predefined % of reflectance is captured by a MEMS mirror taking the signal to the destination. The % reflectance is set by the number of taps on the optical bus. There were a number of things said in that keynote that are feasible but I remain skeptical about the timeline when products are likely to emerge. A number of companies have saying stuff about 1.5Trillion networked devices and this remains to be seen. @RickMerrit: it was good to see you at the event and I enjoyed reading the report. MP Divakar

Can we see the demonstration? or just marketing announcement?
