Does it make sense to put smart dust into window cleaner buckets, squirt bottles or on squeegees for distribution onto interior and exterior windows? Why would we do this you ask? Well perhaps we desire to help better acclimate the inside of the building to an ideal temperature?

Perhaps we desire to enhance indoor cellular phone reception? Maybe we wish to help judge wind speed outside buildings, sample the elements or collect information on the environmental quality in the room or outside?

Why windows? You will want to coat the entire building with the smart dust? Indeed that’s another concept worth thought. Embed the smart dust in to the paint or building coatings.

By putting the smart dust sensors on the windows we are able to have a very flat work surface to use as a good platform and the nodes or motes used by the smart dust to communicate can indeed work better from outside and inside through windows.

Also the smart dust can collect energy from sunlight if on the inside of the windows and thus be for the most part duty free from a power standpoint. What lengths is such technology away?

Well currently smart dust might actually appear to be dust on the window so, currently it is too big to use, however in the future this can not function as case at all. dust sensor Down the road the smart dust will be microscopic in nature and perfect for this application. Consider all this in 2006.
