The advancement of wireless communications and integrated circuit technology has enabled the development of low-cost sensor networks. The sensor networks can be used for various application areas (disaster recovery, health, military, homeland security, environment, home, etc.). For each application area, there are different technical issues that researchers are currently resolving. However, many of them are trying to tackle the limitations of this field from a network perspective. Sometimes, the effectiveness of some proposed approaches must be complemented by the supports of hardware design. This article points out the possibilities of overcoming the same problem set from a device perspective by taking advantage of the merits of nanotechnologies. At the same time, open research issues and challenges are identified to spark new interests and developments in this field
