WORLD'S FIRST CARBON NANOTUBE COMPUTER


In a world’s first, a team of researchers built a computer with a central processor made out of carbon nanotubes. The processor has more than 170 transistors and can switch between tasks, keep track of them and fetch data from and to an external memory. The team believes that carbon nanotube electronics are a viable replacement for silicon-based ones.
