written by reader Smart Dust – The new 19 Trillion Industry.

By mark, March 21, 2017

Pitched by Agora – Robert Burke and Louis Basenese – is this real or a stand up comedy routine. Smart Dust. An invisible network of data collection sensors …typically deployed in large swarms. They say CNN reports no one’s privacy will be secure anymore. A trillion of them by 2020. Smart Dust will transform our lives. Turn 5000 into $210.892. Or if you want other math, 6566% gains. Part of the deal is a free report on the ”inescapable bullet”. This bullet can make 90 degree turns in flight. But the blurb is mainly about ”Join(ing) the 19 trillion smart dust boom”. You couldn’t make this up if you tried. Do people buy into this? Maybe for the fun of it. gotta hand it to them for being creative.

These guys must be talking about the sensor industry behind the internet of things stuff. Paul Manpilly at Banyon Hill uses the 19 trillion figure also. His reco for sensors is STM. But I gotta get some of that Smart Dust. Anyone have any ideas.

What has happened to Smart Dust in the three years since the previous article was posted? For starters, one of these machines is called a Micro-Electromechanical System (MEMS, for short). As miniaturization continues, and when deployed in mass, they would look like dust, very smart dust; hence, the euphemism. Do a search with your favorite search engine for MEMS, and you will find many articles from reputable sources. For example, as of today, the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) can point you to 4,247 documents here [https://www.nist.gov/fusion-search?s=mems]. But, why stop
