Microsoft is deploying tiny sensors throughout its datacenters to capture data that will allow it to better regulate energy consumption and reduce their carbon footprint.
Sensors can also be deployed in the wild to help scientists monitor and track environmental changes. The SenseWeb technology was shown at the PDC 2008 conference.

SensorMap is an application that mashes up sensor data from SenseWeb on a map interface, and provides interactive tools to selectively query sensors and visualize data, along with authenticated access to manage sensors.
This is a pretty interesting project that has lots of applications. The sensor technology needs to be strong enough though to become manageable on the power supply and networking side.
