DailyDirt: Molecular Electronics Isn't Quite Science Fiction

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

There's going to be a point where Moore's law stops -- because the things we build can only get so small before quantum physics starts to really mess with how circuits behave.

Molecular electronics aren't practical just yet, but the development of nanoscale components isn't completely ridiculous. Here are just a few examples. After you've finished checking out those links, take a look at our Daily Deals for cool gadgets and other awesome stuff.
