Draper Labs has watched micro-electro-mechanical technologies go from a head-scratcher to a no-brainer in the last 10 years, with possible commercial partnerships right around the corner.
Draper was into bio-MEMs before they were cool.
Micro-electro-mechanical systems, also known as MEMs, are tiny electrical machines that are common in consumer electronics and automotive sensors. Their presence in medical technology, however, is a much newer phenomenon.
In the last 10 years, as bio-MEMs technology has gone from being a head-scratcher to being a no-brainer, Jeffrey Borenstein has had a front-row seat.
