Aside from the seven electric motors inside the computer used to type this paper, there are approximately 38 individual devices that use electric motors in the typical home and automobile. What began with Michael Faraday in 1831 (when he demonstrated the principle of an electric current), has now reached maturity. Two words that serve as accurate descriptors of this maturation process they are: small and everywhere. One might say, "And your point is?" The examination of the life cycle of the electronic motor provides insight into the future of computing.
