Imagine A Supercomputer The Size Of A Dust Particle

Scientists at Hewlett Packard and UCLA say they´ve patented a means of getting around a big hurdle in the race to build computer chips at the molecular level.

The breakthrough could give researchers an efficient way to control the flow of information on the tiny circuits. Nanotechnology researchers hope to someday create computers as small as dust or that can even be injected into the bloodstream. With molecular circuitry, a supercomputer could easily fit in a person´s hand.
