Is this an actual physical phenomena or is it just something that has appeared in a computer simulation? That is what it sounds like. It would be a game changer if it were able to be implemented in a simple and inexpensive manner, but that may not happen. Moving from a simulation to reality, (actual hardware), is often the show stopping task. In the interim these chaps have a nice grant to live on while chasing a theoretical "reality".

I haven't seen any of the publications, but I note that in several cases in the above article they said they were able to "do" things, not simulate them. Presumably they were able to make a polariton and observe it. I expect the motion sensing aspect is still theory. It will be interesting to see if anything comes of it.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
