Every so often, a press release just catches me. This one reached out and grabbed me...I had to read it. It sounded like a science fiction story. Well, the reality wasn't what I had hoped, but it is pretty cool, nonetheless. How many of us have tried desperately to read the multimeter, or the display on a device that is just located in a place in a plant where you simply can't see the numbers? Yeah, I thought so---that virtual show of hands was darn near unanimous. Wouldn't it be cool if the device was able to talk? How about this?
