MEMS : Java Glossary


MEMS (Micro Electromechanical Systems). Sometimes called smart dust, they are dust sized particles, packed full of sensors, lasers and communications transceivers, capable of communicating with one another. They could be used for a range of applications from weather and pollution monitoring to spying. In future, they could be small enough to remain suspended in air, buoyed by the currents, sensing and communicating for hours. Currently the smallest ones are about 5 mm long, solar powered.
