In his podcast interview, Vigna described what he calls MEMS "traps" — ways of thinking about MEMS that hold back the industry and slow its growth. He advises against "falling in love with the chip" or the technology; instead, the industry should fall in love with applications.

Looking ahead, Vigna sees the industry metamorphosing from its current era of consumerization to what he calls "personalization," i.e., sensors in/on/around the body.
