LED may not just take off because of the durability of LED. I see the Apps element as a key element of the opportunity. People may like to program their lights and LED lighting offers something great in that space.

The promise of IoT is so obvious that anyone that misses it just want to miss it. There is no denying the convergence of data and cloud with IoT. My concern is that the fragmentation may make it difficult for the traditional companies to lead the sector. Companies like Electric Imp may surprise many in this space.

Re: Solar brings new benefits to household
>>  Nanotechnology might be more involved with materials that potentially are capable of sending and receiving a kind of electronic signal. 

Sure - I do think it has the promise to redesign and make energy efficiency and storage better if we can move some of the works in labs into markets.

>> So, that seems to be the most promising material to be used in the energy harvesting and making sensors battery free.

Why not NEMS - Nano electro mechanical systems. In other words, take the Micro down to order of 1,000. I was expecting that to drive this market. And that is nanotechnology.

Solar Power
The post is really interesting and leave us with many positive thoughts for future. When we consider Solar Power systems, one of the main areas we need to be considerable is the ability to store the power generated through Solar. There would be many situations where it is needed to store the generated power for further usages not only during night time, but in dark and rainy days too. Therefore, it is very important to took at the ways and means to store the generated power for a longer period of time and possibilities of regenerating or rather developing more power through the generated power.

Re: Solar brings new benefits to household
Arizona weather has hot all the time. But, initial cost might be high to install solar panel. Each house needs to turn on air condition which requires a lot of electric power in AZ's weather condition. I doubt that the stored energy from solar could have an enough energy power to turn on air conditioner, unless house installed hybrid energy consisting of solar and conventional electric energy or huge solar power system is installed in the house.

Re: Solar brings new benefits to household
solar is still dependent on subsidies and not all states and utilities are on board. It's a surprise AZ does not have more residential solar amid the 300 plus days of sunshine

Re: Solar brings new benefits to household
Nanotech applies to solar as well since many have developed quantum dot and 3D nanorod based cells requiring advanced thin film deposition nanotech. Older more mature tech based on x-Si is still most common though due to econ of scale and $

only makes sense
It only makes sense for the IoT to take off like wildfire. A united and integrated connectivity of all electronic devices and systems for our daily lives is the wave of the future. Smartphone apps allow for people to control purchasing, home security systems, vehicle systems, power monitoring, fitness and health monitoring all from a single mobile device. TSMC, the largest chip foundry in the world, is taking this to heart in the formation of a new task force to develop chips focused on the IoT- to get ahead of the curve and not be surprised as many chip companies were by the shift from desktops/PCs to mobile computing devices, leading to low sales and mothballed fabs.
