A few days ago, there was one article about $10 spectrometer. Hopefully, you guys must be interested in it.

Not sure if this is the first. Check out this module from hamamatsu

DynamicLogic.US: Very interesting concept--we see so many people having to carry around those oxygen bottles and nose dispencers. Whose doing this work?

Respirocytes, artificial blood cells that carry far more oxygen than bio versions. Interesting concept packs in compressed O2. It's a ways off.

gt-Yes, many complex MEMS defives in the past have failed, expecially those involving microfluids as you mentioned. This device failed its first time around last year, but they think they have the kinks worked out now. Let's keep our fingers crossed. Thanks for the comment.

Until now MEMS devices have been somewhat simple--the only complex ones performing the jobs of several simple ones on the same chip, such as 6-axis combos. But the MEMS spectrometer performs many different functions with light and moveable mechanisms. What other complex devices might be amenable to the MEMS process?
