According to today's New York Times, scientists have built a memory chip the size of a white blood cell with wires as thin as proteins. It holds 160,000 bits and is 40 times as dense as today's memory chips — impressive.
The chips don't quite work yet, and may never be sold commercially, but if they were, the possibilities for gadgets and computers could be endless: from smarter robots to keychains that hold hundreds of video games. And Google would have no problem finding storage space for detailed images of the entire solar system. In the meantime, let's hand it to the scientists who are working hard to take the "FI" out of our name.
