HP's major computing breakthrough

This is a pointer to the future item on something that will change the whole of computing including, of course, telecare and telehealth devices. In 1971 a professor at University of California at Berkeley theorised about a ‘missing fourth basic element in integrated circuits’ and named it the memristor. Just a couple of years ago HP Labs created them and started experimenting. They have now announced that memristors have some remarkably useful properties that will not only provide incredible computing power in very small sizes, but will make them ideal for body-embedded or body-worn devices… New York Times article / HP press release.

  1. Computing breakthrough
    Sounds like a major advance in memory and computing technology. Now, if only the care manufacturers could make advances of this significance perhaps we could expect major advances in transportation!
