Just add water, Your Computer Will Work: Stanford Engineers’ Marvel

Standford University scientist Manu Prakash and his team of students have developed a computer that can operate using the fundamental physics principle of moving water droplets generate energy, which may heral new class of computers altogether based on manipulating water droplets for energy. Ever since he was a graduate student, Prakash tossed with the idea of ussing little droplets as ...

Stanford University Scores Over Super-Fast Computers Working on Light, not Electricity

Light can replace electricity to transmit more data consuming less power and replacing wires, say Stanford University researchers. Developed by Stanford electrical engineer Jelena Vuckovic tried to miniaturize the proven technology of the Internet, which moves data by beaming photons of light through fiber optic threads. In a Nature Photonics article whose lead author is Stanford graduate student Alexander Piggott, ...
