The Memristor and you. Technology to program nanotechnology.

Technology
Right now we have resistors, capacitors, and incutors we also have four basic circuit variables current, voltage, charge and flux. I am not an engineer but my understanding is, that with these variables you should be able to have four different components and not just three. The fourth component known as a memristor was first theorized in 1971 by Leon Chua. This theoretical fouth component would have properties that were not reproducable by the other three components alone or in any combination. Both New Scientist and an even more mainstream magazine Maximum PC have reported on the memristor. This component is simply that big a breakthrough! The memristor is indeed different from its brothers. When a charge is passed through the circuit in one direction its resistance increases, when it…

Whew, gaming and other thought processes

Personal
Yep, it is been a while since I blogged. You start playing a game with a highly addictive nature, and blamo, you haven't blogged in a couple months. That's ok though, there have simply been too many cool breakthroughs the last couple weeks that I just couldn't ignore and I had to blog about. Keep an eye out for posts, they are starting again.
