Are you talking about this:

There is a lot going on in this field, and anything goes...

A subset of this technology is Mechatronics.

P.S.

You are at the forefront of technology here, some words are not recognized by CR4's spell checker, but widely used in the industry.

Its amazing how quickly progress can be made when governments start throwing money at a problem.

Here is an example of what has taken many years to produce on a shoestring budget.

Wow, the hand action seems quite smooth. Noise level is low.

No matter how much money is available, good progress is money well spent.
