Groundbreaking electric motor will give us<br>optical zoom in our mobile cameras

An American company has developed what they call the world´s smallest electrical motor. We can now expect that our mobile cameras have optical zoom functions in the near future.
The US based New Scale Technologies has developed the 6 mm long linear motor which can be used as a driver for the zoom function in digital mobile cameras.

“Even by the most conservative handset sales forecasts, phone cameras alone represent a new market for one billion motors a year”, New Scale Technologies president David Henderson told Electronics Weekly.
