@harnhua: There're a lot of things we can learn via biomimicry!

I agree -- I'm constantly amazed by the way in which living organisms have evolved the most incredibly capabilities -- the folk screating robots and flying / swiming things are constantly learning from living creatures.

The elegance of this solution is that the insect deals with the issues of climbing up and over and around obstacles while the human / external driver concentrates on the end objective. Since the "legwork" has historically been a hard part to program, the insect brain is doing the part for us that we have trouble with!

How about remote controlled St. Bernards? I'd much rather be carried out by a trio of slobbering poochies than 500 cockroaches..  :-)

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.
