<http://www.technologyreview.com/news/519421/the-first-carbon-nanotube-computer/> “Materials News The First Carbon Nanotube Computer A carbon nanotube computer processor is comparable to a chip from the early 1970s, and may be the first step beyond silicon electronics. By Katherine Bourzac on September 25, 2013 . For the first time, researchers have built a computer whose central processor is based entirely on […]
Cringly: Is cyber insurance AAA for data or another back door?
Comments from Cave Painter August 4, 2013 at 10:10 pm …what about all the pieces of code in between the customer and my server? What about the operating system and support applications on the machine hosting my application? What about the embedded microcode in the chip that implements the higher level abstraction that is the CPU […]
Welcome to the fifth dimension, where data is stored on crystals
http://www.dvice.com/2013-7-9/welcome-fifth-dimension-where-data-stored-crystals Colin Druce-McFadden Tuesday, July 9, 2013 – 5:54pm It sounds like a bunch of sci-fi hullabaloo, but data storage has just crossed into the fifth dimension. That’s right: the dimension sometimes referred to by physicists as the fabric of spacetime can now be harnessed to store you cat videos. And they’ve done it […]
Automatic NERF Sentry Gun
http://kotaku.com/automatic-nerf-sentry-gun-is-just-about-the-coolest-thi-711955960 … A proper sentry gun, like one you’d see in a video game or movie, which can automatically track you then start shooting until you die (of amazement). It was built by Instructables user BrittLiv, and comprises a NERF Vulcan gun, a stand, a motor and a laptop. Using recognition software, the laptop’s camera can track someone […]

Quantum Computer Kicks PC A?? in First Ever Head-to-Head Test
http://gizmodo.com/quantum-computer-kicks-pc-ass-in-first-ever-head-to-hea-499681531 SEXPAND Scientists often claim that quantum computers will blow the competition away in the coming years—and now the world’s first head-to-head test has shown they leave regular PCs reeling in their wake. Quantum computer use the idea of quantum bits, called qubits, that can theoretically take the value of 0 and 1 at the same […]
