This technology is impressive. The nano-size, efficient sharing of IC production, and extreme ruggedness will be an excellent tool for computer peripherals, sensors, automobiles, and biotechnology. I'm wondering if it will expand into a Jurassic Park-like usage for paleontologic usage applied to a time capsule for the future. I wonder if it can be applied to cryogenics.

It would see like this product could also work in industrial areas where electronics are subject to temperature, chemical or noise issues. Medical is clearly a good initial market, but other applications are sure to develop...
