Lighting it Right with Smart Dust

Abstract:
Dust Networks provides a wireless mesh networking technology consisting of "smart motes," which create a low-power, connected network of devices such as sensors, control devices, and computers. The company was founded by in 2002 by a team including Kristofer Pister, a professor of electrical engineering and computer sciences at the University of California at Berkeley, who first coined the expression "smart dust" as a way of describing tiny, expendable sensors.

(Ed.'s note: this is not nanotechnology, yet [nor are they claiming it to be]. See our page on Smartdust. Someday, however, I believe this technology will be enabled by our understanding of the nanoscale.)
