Supersensitive Accelerometer Could Be the Answer to Better Drone Control

Supercapacitor technology could make tiny accelerometers as much as 1 million times more sensitive Photo: Ezzat Bakhoum Accelerometers are everywhere. You’ve probably got at least one on your person right now. But today’s run-of-the-mill accelerometers—MEMS devices that measure a minute change in capacitance—just aren’t very sensitive. They’re built to fit…
