        This could be the future of computer microprocessors.

        "A team of scientists have successfully bent light beams around objects on a two dimensional surface.

        Its the first ever demonstration of what is known as "airy beams", with light being bent around an object and then course-correcting itself to continue in a straight line on the other side. The technology could open the door to faster and cheaper light-based computer chips."


        I can't even imagine the need for faster microprocessors, unless it is used for scientific applications.

        What do you think?

        I don't think we need faster processors for home computers or laptops but then again the whole idea of capitalism is to make people buy stuff they don't really need. So I guess we will have faster processors and many of us will rush to buy them

                  That has huge potential  (in theory)  for optical computers not based on silicon chips but it's probably a few years away.  As long as they don't put a chip in my head, I'm okay!

        It's scary, I read a survey where they asked under 30 y/o people if they would have a cell phone implanted somewhere in their body and the results were 65% yes.
        I have been trying to find it again.
        If you see it, let me know.

        i was sitting talking with my brother last night about how far we have come and i was laughing because i saw a childrens classroom on tv, all full of computers.

        i said, hey remember when we were in the first grade, and WE had little small boxes filled with kidney beans, and THAT was how we learned how to count...soooooo much has
        changed in out life. 

        what we thought was science fiction when we were little is reality now.
