MEMS the Wurd

Check out memsnet.org
Microcomponants or Micro Machines MEMS are Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems. Which have garnered various net-tention, most known as the sensors for automobile air bags. The newer less bulky MEMS are heralded as a tenth the price and size and more efficient. The person submitting this link who suffers from diabetes was excited about the notion of using MEMS technology to implant a chip into a diabetic that would determine when the person's blood sugar was too high and then automatically delivering the appropriate amount of insulin into the body. VERY COOL.
