In this edition we consider the healthcare 'revolution' which we will see over the next ten years. As convergence between professional and consumer technology gathers pace, a multi-billion dollar market will emerge. We look at the factors driving convergence, the opportunities it presents and the challenges that need to be overcome. In our global perspective, we discuss the decline of the UK pharmaceutical industry and report on the approach US industry is taking to capitalise on the end of the recession. Elsewhere, we focus on energy harvesting - the use of local energy sources to generate sufficient power to operate devices in environments previously thought out of bounds. Energy harvesting can lead to exciting new applications in almost every industry sector and the rate at which it is being commercialised is accelerating.
