The possibilities of where and how these devices can be used are endless. If used in the military they can be used to change the current techniques of how to track enemy movements, and to detect poisonous gas or radioactivity.  The device can be also used to monitor inventory, control lighting and temperature, mass screening for infectious disease, and to provide detailed as well as precise data. In the picture below you can see how tiny the device is. Also, the picture shows how the device can be implemented to monitor just about anything. 
Motes may completely change current computer interfaces and enable virtual keyboards, sculpting, and instruments.  For example, motes can be attached to fingernails to constantly transmit finger motion data. Overall, the implementation of Smart Dust will have an affect on several industries for different reasons. One can say many of the current monitoring systems, and current technologies may become obsolete once motes are integrated.

Smart Dust devices are extremly small wireless microelectromechanical sensors, also known as MEMS. The sensors can sense just about anything for example: light, temperature, and vibrations. Each mote is said to contain sensors, computing circuits, bidirectional wireless communications technology, and a power supply.
The Diagram above, explains how Smart Dust works 
Smart Dust devices have many functions. Basically, the motes gather data, run computations and communicate information using two way band radio between motes.  Currently, the device can communicate with other motes within a range of a 1000 feet.
