Thread: The Incredible Shrinking Computer

    The Incredible Shrinking Computer

    Just think we will all be able to have supercomputers running Linux sitting on our desktops. ;D That is as long as we don't suck them up in the vaccum cleaner. ;D :P

    Today's R&D is focused on processors no bigger than a grain of sand. The enabler is nanotechnology: systems for transforming matter, energy, and information based on nanometer-scale components.

    To reach grain-of-sand status, researchers at Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, have demonstrated binary optical storage using nanoclusters of silver oxide, two to eight atoms each.

    LOL! Glad I don't vacuum very often! Also, what am I going to do about typing? If everything gets so small, and I have fat fingers, this could be a problem!

    If you give a man a fire he'll be warm, if you light the man on fire he'll be warm for life.
