"Two forces drive the evolution of the Internet of Things: Speed and size. Organizations are leveraging enhanced broadband connectivity to drive real-time analytics and on-demand intelligence, even as new manufacturing techniques make it possible to squeeze compute power onto millimeter or micrometer architecture."—Source: EdTech Magazine
WHY THIS MATTERS:
One of the next big things in campus tech is physically teeny tiny. Low-cost microelectromechanical systems could be a game changer, packing expanded IT power into a small-scale package. Read how campuses can start to prepare for MEMS.
