Bourne Research to Publish A Consumer's Guide to MEMS and Nanotechnology

Bourne Research LLC today announced the upcoming publication of "A Consumer's Guide to MEMS and Nanotechnology", (ISBN 978-0979550546, Bourne Research, $39.95). The book, authored by Marlene Bourne, President & Principal Analyst of Bourne Research, examines how MEMS (MicroElectroMechanical Systems) and nanotechnology are changing the way we live, work and play.

Are you curious why sunscreen, which used to be white, is now clear? How motion-sensing video games work? Why your car knows when to deploy the airbags? How liquids bead up and roll off some surfaces? Why silver nanoparticles are such a big deal?

"A Consumer's Guide to MEMS and Nanotechnology" takes readers into the micro-world (and beyond) to discover an amazing range of sensors, structures, materials and more. The book explains what they do and how they work, then explores how they're being applied in real products today -- and what that means to the consumer.

"There's no doubt that MEMS and nanotechnology are both cool and controversial, but their reach extends far beyond novel golf equipment and stain-resistant pants," says Marlene Bourne. "They're already an integral part of product safety, such as decreasing the risk of static in your car's fuel line, as well as practical applications, like reducing energy consumption in the home and taking better care of your family's health and well-being."

"A Consumer's Guide to MEMS and Nanotechnology" examines the history of MEMS devices and nanomaterials, as well as their evolution into the marketplace. With detailed examples of products from nearly 500 companies, this an excellent reference guide to the current state of MEMS and nanotech commercialization. The book is a must-read for those interested in science, technology and engineering, from students and curious technophiles, to executives seeking new ways to grow their businesses.

"A Consumer's Guide to MEMS and Nanotechnology" will begin shipping on August 18th. To pre-order the book, or for more information, please visit: http://www.bourneresearch.com/book.htm .
