as Tom mentioned the path from protype to a commercial products can be long...I would give it 5 years in this case...graphene is very emerging material

I think the newer MEMS will not a problem as far as manufacturing is concern, as they have already a prototype (As seen from the picture in the article). But application and acceptance will be dependent on the manufacturers' efforts.

Any idea how far from commercial reality is this research discovery?

It is just a start, I think all the sensors associated with either of  force/pressure/vibration will be having a complete makeover and miniaturization of their size and shape. But the durability will be the property of testing still.

Frank: I'm with you.  The advance in research and theory is always inspiring, but I'd be interested to know where this is in the pipleline that flows from academia to the production flaw.  We know that some technologies never make it all the way through, but it's nice to keep an eye on their progress. 

Does anyone know, or can even speculate, on how long it typically takes for such advances to result in a practical prototype of an actual product?  Surely, there's some sort of rule of thumb on that...?

I would like to have read some discussion about how graphene fits into the standard silicon MEMS manufacturing process.
