Kaku Explains the Future of Computing Power

Moore’s Law says that computer Power doubles every 18 months. However this “guideline” is in the process of breaking down. The limits of silicon technology are becoming apparent and new technology will need to be developed in order for computing power to progress. As theoretical physicist Michio Kaku says, computing power simply cannot continue at the exponential rate Moore’s law …

Using Pencil Lead for Microprocessors?

Graphite, more commonly known as pencil lead, could become the next big thing in the quest for smaller and less power-hungry electronics. Resembling chicken wire on a nano scale, graphene – single sheets of graphite – is only one atom thick, making it the world’s thinnest material. Two million graphene sheets stacked up would not be as thick as a …
