IBM Is Shrinking Transistors With Rows Of Tiny Carbon Nanotubes

In the semiconductor industry, size matters — and people are worried that it won’t be able make transistors any smaller. But a team of IBM scientists has now published research showing how carbon nanotubes could help.

Disappearing Graphene Circuits Could Make Temporary Electrical Devices

Imagine electrical circuits that you could print off and use for a few hours before they melted away and stop functioning or changed their function. A spy’s best friend, they could become reality thanks to a new kind of electric circuitry printed on graphene.

A New Light-Based Memory Chip Could Change The Fundamentals Of Computing

Electrons are quick, but they’re not quick enough — in fact they’re holding back the speed of modern computing. Now, a team has developed the world’s first ever light-based memory chip that can store data permanently, and it could help usher in a new era of computing

Qualcomm's New 'Quick Charge' Takes A Phone From 0 To 80% In 35 Minutes

Most phones have some kind of quick charge system these days and on Android many of them are powered by Qualcomm’s Quick Charge. But the technology has been given an overhaul, and the next-gen version will take a dead phone to 80 per cent of charge in just 35 minutes. That is lightning fast.

New 3D XPoint Storage Will Be 1,000 Times Faster Than Current SSDs

Think your solid state drive is blazing fast? Then prepare to be amazed by the new storage system being proposed by Intel and Micron, which promises speeds that are one thousand times faster than current NAND Flash memory.

This Transistor Is Made From A Molecule And A Few Atoms

It might look like some kind of grade school abstract painting, but you’re actually looking at a microscopic transistor which is made up of a single molecule and a smattering of of atoms.

Samsung's Mirrored And Clear OLED Screens Are Straight From The Future

Samsung has announced a new series of prototype OLED displays in Hong Kong that, with their mirrored and transparent surfaces, are like something from a sci-fi film.

This 55-Inch LG Display Peels Off The Wall Like A Poster

LG consistently produces impressive screens, and this one is no exception. The 55-inch OLED panel is just 0.97 millimetres thick, and can be removed from its magnetic wall mounting like a poster.

This Tiny Battery Could Make Small Chips Entirely Independent

While chips have gotten increasingly smaller, even low-power silicon usually uses off-chip power supplies because shrinking batteries down is difficult. This new super-small battery could finally put power supplies on the chip — and tiny computational systems anywhere you can imagine.

The Apple Watch Has A Hidden Port That Could Make It Way Better

One of the most annoying thing about many smartwatches is terrible battery life, requiring a charge just about every night. But the Apple Watch’s hidden port could be the solution.
