Is there a place for Mechatronics and robotics in/on Maidsafe?


Pondering on the future of manufacturing, primarily in the context of Manufacturing 4.0, with the recent creation of technologists in Germany to propose a “cyber physical” system in which manufacturing systems share information over the internet and coordinate resources.
These “involving idealized perfection visions” of the future are actually interdependent. The manufacturing systems of the future which will be based on the premise of internet services that are fully embedded in every sensor and controller providing a common communications layer with no hardware dependency. Really is there any control system device that doesn’t already have an Ethernet connector on it? .
Just a thought.
