Re: Sensors Continue to the Hot Topic
Pairing an electronics manufacturer with a sensor company makes a lot of sense. 

We're going to be seeing a lot of devices made in the coming years that have sensors built in. Kind of reminds me of when computers started having cameras installed. It just happened - and now they all have them, phones included.

@afwriter, I agree. Sensors have solved some common and not so common problems for companies and consumers.

TDK Eyes IvenSense
This is great. This acquisition makes sense and will help consumers and the industries noted. Other acquisitions seem more concerned about profit.

Auto, energy and manufacturing are great industries to start with. I would welcome more sensors in autos as well as energy products for homeowners such as thermostats.

This is great, however with any technology it is only as good as the programmer who coded it.

Re: Sensors Continue to the Hot Topic
I agree. This merger seems like a good marriage between TDK's existing technology and the additional mechanisms that IvenSense's sensors detect.

Re: Sensors Continue to the Hot Topic
@afwriter well, that makes sense. As sensors become more economical to produce and can be made small enough and flexible enough to fit in places they coudl not have gone before, a lot more possibilities open up. So we see sensors used in various sports, as well as in medical monitoring in ways that don't impede movement at all.

Sensors Continue to the Hot Topic
This merger shows that sensors are becoming a bigger and bigger part of our lives and a welcome one for that matter. This new collaboration seems like it will be a large step forward for the industry as a whole.
