I see two interesting possibilities. First, take a sheet of this sensor material (with embedded lenses), roll it into a cylinder, and you have a 360 degree panoramic camera! Secondly, the ubiquitous sensors could be used as motion detectors - not as external cameras looking at the human but rather as a camera attached to the human (wristband) detecting the apparent motion of the environment and thereby deducing the person's gestures.

There has been interesting innovations in printed electronics in the last couple of year. But a majority of these devices / applications have been in short term and disposable type products. More information on their reliability and accuracy over time needs to be made available. MP Divakar

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.
