Tronics invests in a joint venture in China to strengthen its commercial activities in the region and provide local support to its customers. Grenoble, France (PRWEB) May 21, 2012 Almost ten years back, Tronics identified China as a potential high growth opportunity for MEMS. At that time, the Chinese MEMS market was in its infancy and there were few customers with good technical competencies in MEMS technologies. Meanwhile the Chinese MEMS community has grown fast and has developed...

Active Sports Video Games Not Increasing Exercise In Children
2012-02-27 09:09:40

A new study, published in Pediatrics, calls into question the health benefits of so-called active video games, in which players use their bodies to simulate sports or dancing, reports Jennifer Warner for WebMD. Previous laboratory studies showed initial promise in allowing children to increase physical activity in children with sports and motion-oriented video games, but researchers say the new study offers no reason to believe that children actually increase their physical activity more...

Imaeg 1 - New Microtweezers May Build Tiny 'MEMS' Structures
2012-01-18 04:53:54

Researchers have created new "microtweezers" capable of manipulating objects to build tiny structures, print coatings to make advanced sensors, and grab and position live stem cell spheres for research. The microtweezers might be used to assemble structures in microelectromechanical systems, or MEMS, which contain tiny moving parts. MEMS accelerometers and gyroscopes currently are being used in commercial products. A wider variety of MEMS devices, however, could be produced through a...
