My Quest for the Ultimate Wearable

by Karen Lightman
Executive Director, MEMS & Sensors Industry Group Click here to view this blog on the Design News website! Way back in 2013, I shared with you my quest for a fuel-efficient family car and debated the merits/demerits of electronic vehicles vs. hybrids. That blog received some of the most intense discussion/debate from the engineering design community and helped us to eventually buy the Honda hybrid that we drive now (though my daughters really wanted that Tesla, which, sadly, would have required a ....
