Scientists are planning to create a new type of computer that not only self-replicates, but it is also made of very surprising materials: silicon chips with processors that are made of DNA molecules.
Time crystals are strange hypothetical structures as they have an atomic structure that not just repeats itself in space, but also in time. This means they are in perpetual motion without using energy. And scientists have just confirmed their existence.
Microsoft is reportedly spending big dollars to make a super computer straight out of a science fiction movie. The tech giant has been hiring top-notched engineering experts all over the world to create the world's first-ever super quantum computer.
Researchers have created an all-optical transistor capable of being switched on and off by a single photon, or light particle - an impressive demonstration of physics that arguably places scientists one step closer to the complete harnessing of optical computing, the act of using light rather than electricity to perform calculations.
