The role of sensors

I'm partial to Invensense, and I sometimes wonder what "things" will have motion sensing capabilities in them in the future.  Children's toys come to mind.  Does anyone more creative than me have other crazy ideas for future uses of motion sensing chips?

I think home dlivery drones may need all the sensors it can get. Live sports entertainment with equipped players will become more real if we deploy these sensors and wire the players. As TV ratings soar and leagues want to enage fans, there is opportunity to create digital players out of the real players. That will be a new growth market.

Any info on what products are driving the growth? Is it mostly from Flash memory? Overall numbers are fine, but I'd like to better understand the drivers behind the growth. Any ideas?

Motion sensing is highly useful for virtual reality. they'll be in googles and in peripherials(gloves, swords,joysticks etc).

There all kinds of sports training gadgets the could become popular.

On pet collars to know their real time location. For wild life in forest and for difficult aquamarines.
