The map produced by the MEMS cluster around Helsinki, including Aalto University and the VTT Resarch Center shows that exotic materials, such as graphene, are predicted to have role to play in MEMS just as they are in conventional integrated circuts.
@Peter Clarke: nice slides, MEMS approaching $5.7B in a couple of years, it is not surprising that many countries are jumping to the arena.
What is the longer term plan for these efforts, beyond the R&D and prototyping? Where do they intend to manufacture?
Nice pictures. Thanks for sharing. The video of the robot cycler is interesting. But, doesn't it put his feet down? How does the bicycle remains vertical even when not pedaling? Does the robot include a gyroscope?
