Tinkering with vacuums

Pasta&Vinegar links to this Economist piece on high-tech tinkerers/makers. Just about anything, including vacuum cleaners, are fair game for modification. Nicolas Nova believes this trend is valuable to businesses, if they know how to capitalize.

I would like to know what he means by the phrase "effects of dematerialization" at the end of his post. It's a theme I'm interested in as well.
