We have seen the future, and it sucks.

Light-Based ‘Metatronics’ Chip Melts Minds, Not Copper

27th February 2012

Read it.

Unlike conventional silicon, the new chip uses light — not electricity — to perform its logic. By creating an array of nano-rods, light-flow can be treated like voltage and current. These rods can then be configured to emulate electrical components such as resistors, inductors and capacitors.

We have the technology — or soon will.
