Bar code scanning?
I can see huge application for this in Bar code scanning, which currently almost invariably uses mechanical steering devices.  It would have to be a bit more developed than this but not a lot.

Oh and Bill... "Yes, there are all-Geranium (Ge) devices in use"

I have some all-Geranium flower pots out the front of my house... :-)

What's an "m" versus and "r" between friends?  And your bar-code scanner application makes a lot of sense-- those galvanometers used are the weak link, for sure.

Bill... just a bit of friendly ribbing, my fingers do worse than that!

And a Happy New Year to you and yours.

It looks like AM radios in EV/HEVs are going the way of the carburetor due to EMI/RFI and other factors.
Liquid-based cooling of electronics is rarely the preferred solution to thermal management, but it may be the only one; improvements in the underlying components may make it a more-palatable option.
The basic component values associated with the low-voltage AC charging circuit for the Ring2 video doorbell have me wondering if I am missing some basic understanding.
