“Smart Dust” is not the pearly white powder that makes Columbian drug lords rich. It’s more like the governments way of keeping tabs on the Columbian drug lords and anyone else they want to spy on.
If you think I have snorted too much blow and lost my mind. Think again!
The” Smart Dust” we are referring to is more like a mad mans wet dream. “Smart Dust” is an emerging technology made up from tiny sensors or “motes”. Eventually, these devices will be smart enough to talk with other sensors yet small enough to fit on the head of a pin. Each mote is a tiny computer with a power supply, one more sensors and communications systems (HSU,Kahn and Pister 1998.)
I don’t know about you but I bet the sheeple will think this technology is here to just keep us safe!
Just knowing that we have airplanes dumping shit in our skies that you can see literally fall to the ground and a constant buzzing in my ears. Questioning the fact if we don’t already have smart dust everywhere would be elementary at this point.
Here is a video with information about :”Smart Dust”
Now for all the people who think this can’t be real, here are a few guys to break shit down for you!
Here is a website from the scientists that are funded by DARPA describing “Smart Dust “http://robotics.eecs.berkeley.edu/~pister/SmartDust/
THE MEMS TECHNOLOGY IN SMART DUST
Smart dust requires mainly revolutionary advances in miniaturization, integration & energy management. Hence designers have used.MEMS technology to build small sensors, optical communication components, and power supplies. Micro-electro mechanical systems consists of extremely tiny mechanical elements, often integrated together with electronic circuitory. They are measured in micrometers that are millions of a meter. They are made in a similar fashion as computer chips.The advantage of this manufacturing process is not simply that small structures can be achieved but also that thousands or even millions of system elements can be fabricated simultaneously. This allows systems to be both highly complex and extremely low-cost.

Now that you are educated on this tiny little spy here is what CNN has to say about “Smart Dust”
Article by CNN
In the 1990s, a researcher named Kris Pister dreamed up a wild future in which people would sprinkle the Earth with countless tiny sensors, no larger than grains of rice.
These “smart dust” particles, as he called them, would monitor everything, acting like electronic nerve endings for the planet. Fitted with computing power, sensing equipment, wireless radios and long battery life, the smart dust would make observations and relay mountains of real-time data about people, cities and the natural environment.
Now, a version of Pister’s smart dust fantasy is starting to become reality.
“It’s exciting. It’s been a long time coming,” said Pister, a computing professor at the University of California, Berkeley.
“I coined the phrase 14 years ago. So smart dust has taken a while, but it’s finally here.”
Maybe not exactly how he envisioned it. But there has been progress.
The latest news comes from the computer and printing company Hewlett-Packard, which recently announced it’s working on a project it calls the “Central Nervous System for the Earth.” In coming years, the company plans to deploy a trillion sensors all over the planet.
The wireless devices would check to see if ecosystems are healthy, detect earthquakes more rapidly, predict traffic patterns and monitor energy use. The idea is that accidents could be prevented and energy could be saved if people knew more about the world in real time, instead of when workers check on these issues only occasionally.
HP will take its first step toward this goal in about two years, said Pete Hartwell, a senior researcher at HP Labs in Palo Alto. The company has made plans with Royal Dutch Shell to install 1 million matchbook-size monitors to aid in oil exploration by measuring rock vibrations and movement, he said. Those sensors, which already have been developed, will cover a 6-square-mile area.
That will be the largest smart dust deployment to date, he said.
“We just think now, the technology has reached a point where it makes basic sense for us … to get this out of the lab and into reality,” Hartwell said.
Smart dust (minus the ‘dust’)
Despite the recent excitement, there’s still much confusion in the computing industry about what exactly smart dust is.
