That’s what the market research fraternity seem to think. Talking to the analysts, those financial heavyweights with the power to urge ‘buy’ or ‘sell’, Frost & Sullivan’s Joseph Constance discussed the newest first part of a Frost & Sullivan two part report on Smart Materials, but never let a figure slip.
As disappointing as the Chaussures Nike Vintage Pas Cher 3i survey on nanotechnology, this report considers that smart materials are, still, after decades, only a ‘frontier’ technology. Expect plenty of interesting applications, lots of research, but no hard figures.
In other reports on Smart Materials from BCC, market figures give way to a technology assessment, (a patent review, Blazer Nike and a look at market potential) and finally a report that focus on niche smart areas – sol gel. But, frontier or emerging, everyone is still shy of smart market numbers, year on year.
Recent research has documented that for infants as young as 12–13 months of age, novel words (both count nouns and adjectives) highlight commonalities among objects and, in this way, foster the formation of object categories. The current experiment was designed to capture more precisely the scope of this phenomenon. We asked whether novel words (count nouns; adjectives) are linked specifically to category-based commonalities from the start, or whether they also direct infants' attention to a wider range of commonalities, including property-based commonalities among objects (e.g. color, texture). The results indicate that by 12–13 months, (1) infants have begun to distinguish between novel words presented as count nouns versus. adjectives in fluent, infant-directed speech, Chaussure Nike Blazer and (2) infants expectations for novel words accord with this emerging sensitivity.
