Change the title into "Deceleration in the growth of accelerometers".

Good one! Do you think the deceleration is due to system's damping finally kicking in or the motion had pseudo acceleration to begin with?!! MP Divakar

Well, while I can not exactly state accelerometers had it coming, one has to wonder if the innovation pipeline has kept up with the glut of cheaper MEMS supply. To that end, it would serve the MEMS developers to spur ecosystems where innovation is nurtured. There is only so much that the handset and tablet makers can do... but for the accelerometers to proliferate on a larger scale as in IoT, I think smaller and nimble startups need to be supported.

Every smartphones/tablets has it but it's features are severely under-utilized right now. We need more apps using these features..... You may not need these features after all....

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
