On pet collars to know their real time location. For wild life in forest and for difficult aquamarines.

Motion sensing is highly useful for virtual reality. they'll be in googles and in peripherials(gloves, swords,joysticks etc).

There all kinds of sports training gadgets the could become popular.

Any info on what products are driving the growth? Is it mostly from Flash memory? Overall numbers are fine, but I'd like to better understand the drivers behind the growth. Any ideas?

I think home dlivery drones may need all the sensors it can get. Live sports entertainment with equipped players will become more real if we deploy these sensors and wire the players. As TV ratings soar and leagues want to enage fans, there is opportunity to create digital players out of the real players. That will be a new growth market.

I'm partial to Invensense, and I sometimes wonder what "things" will have motion sensing capabilities in them in the future.  Children's toys come to mind.  Does anyone more creative than me have other crazy ideas for future uses of motion sensing chips?

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.
