Smart Dust Has Arrived

Smart Dust has been an almost fictional idea of very small computing “motes” that can collect and report data. Like small particles of dust, these little computing sensor nodes could be used to collect information in a variety of applications. By simply injecting some smart dust into a flow of liquid or a tornado, a […]

Tiny Sprite Spacecraft

Tiny spacecraft, known as “sprites” contain microchips and have the ability to supply power, communications and even propulsion. Three prototypes of these postage stamp sized spacecraft will be sent up to the space station for testing on the next shuttle flight. Eventually, the hope is to test the usability of releasing a large cloud of […]

Smart Dust

Smart Dust is a collection of tiny electronic sensors that can collect and report a variety of types of data. In many cases these sensors are designed to self-organize into wireless mesh networks in order to report their data collection. As the sensors become smaller and cheaper, more applications for them will become obvious. SmartDust […]
