Of course, MEMS' oldest success story is automotive, since it is the only technology fast enough to trigger an airbag. Also every ink jet printer uses MEMS inside the its cartridges to dipense the ink--its the razor blade thrown away after use--which to this day is still a bigger market than consumer. However, as consumer electronics proliferate--with nearly everybody on the planet wielding a smartphone with multiple MEMS chips inside--the pace is quicking still. Healthcare and wellness, of course, is the new frontier, but motion-sensing remote controls is also a big deal--especially if a new Apple TV is releases (as rumored) using MEMS motion sensors, which could prompt a new round of lookalikes as did the iPhone and iPad before it.
