NEC Releases Household Power Storage System -- Tech-On!
I wonder if there is going to be a defacto standard regarding expected energy storage for homes, and related system design for HEMS based on the assumption of a minimum amount of storage?

Uses a mixed optical system to grab fingerprints and finger vein data and fuses the sensor data for the biometric match (which could be argued actually reduces the matching accuracy).

Zero-Standby-Power ICs to Enter Practical Use -- Nikkei Electronics Asia -- July 2009 - Tech-On!
smartgird/smarthome sensor webs definitely need this to extend battery life, and with MEMS power scavenging it may be possible to do away with the battery altogether, and use an IC integrated capacitor to store energy. Think ZigBee sensor/control networks

NEC puts household carbon footprint data online ::: Pink Tentacle
A smart little tie-up between a consumer electronics firm and an ISP to get people to buy into a green power monitoring program. This is an interesting strategic move, trying to gain control of power statistical data of ISP customers, potentially as and end run around the electric utilities, so the utilities are forced to pay the data gatekeepers, the ISP, with a cut for the monitoring hardware maker. And since japanese can be utter sheep when someone trots out a green label, there is the potential for significant traction, especially if the ISP is willing to take a loss on the hardware in expectation of revenue from monthly subscribers plus data delivery to users of such data. All the more reason there needs to be open standards and zero barriers to data usage by the original data creators, the end consumer, or else you will have a fantastic data lock-in monopoly.
