Neat stuff!!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Memristor

Basically a "memory variable resistor" based on time and current. :beek:


Williams's solid-state memristors can be combined into devices called crossbar latches, which would replace transistors in future computers, taking up a much smaller area. They can also be fashioned into non-volatile solid-state memory, which would allow greater data density than hard drives with access times potentially similar to DRAM, replacing both components. HP prototyped a crossbar latch memory using the devices that can fit 100 gigabits in a square centimeter. For comparison, the highest-density flash memories at this time (2008) hold 16 gigabits. HP has reported that its version of the memristor is about one tenth the speed of DRAM.

For some reason I feel really old all of a sudden....

Time to revise Moore's Law to every 6 months.
