ucl-silicon-resistive-ramResearchers from the University College London (UCL) managed to construct the first purely silicon oxide-based ‘Resistive RAM’ (ReRAM) memory chip that can operate in ambient conditions. ReRAM chips promise far greater speed than currently available memory technologies, significantly greater memory storage, such as the Flash memory used on USB sticks, and require much less energy… »

tinfoilhatHaving the ability to read someone’s mind with a “thought machine” has been developed more intensively during the last decade. Scientists showed that they could guess a person’s memory simply by looking at the electrical activity of the brain. They have found that spatial memories can be “read” by a brain scanner so that it… »
