Smart Dust Sensors in Window Cleaners for Environmental Information Gathering

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

Perhaps we desire to enhance indoor cell phone reception? Maybe we wish to help judge wind speed outside buildings, sample the weather or collect information on environmentally friendly quality in the room or outside?

Why windows? You will want to coat the entire building with the smart dust? Indeed that is another concept worthy of 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 an excellent platform and the nodes or motes used by the smart dust to communicate can indeed are better from outside and inside through windows.

Also the smart dust can collect energy from the sun if on the interior of the windows and therefore be for the most part duty free from an energy standpoint. dust sensor 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, but in the future this will not be the case at all. In the future the smart dust will undoubtedly be microscopic in nature and ideal for this application. Consider all this in 2006.
