Stores and processes information for when your own brain hurts
Boffins at Northwestern University's McCormick School of Engineering have emerged from their smoke filled labs clutching a "memtransistor" which they claim is the closest thing we have to a computer chip that works a bit like the human brain.
It is not as if you are using it
Chip manufacturer ARM is pairing with the Center for Sensorimotor Neural Engineering (CSNE) at the University of Washington to develop a line of brain-implantable systems-on-a-chip.
Who needs Intel when you have a few rats?
Never mind silicon chips, the future of the computer is bio-mechanics and the parts can be found in your sewer.
Memristors are better than silicon
Memristor could be the best chance to build chips which mimic the human brain. Not everyone's brain of course. There is no point mimicking the brain of someone who thinks that a Smartwatch is a pretty need idea, but rather the brain of someone who is a little more clever.
