So long, transistor: How the ‘memristor’ could revolutionize electronics

By Jacopo Prisco, for CNN

Story highlights

  • The memristor is a new type of electrical component that could revolutionize electronics
  • It was first conceptualized in the 1970s, long before one could even be built
  • Researchers at ETH in Zurich are working with IBM to create a memristor computer within two years
  • Memristor-based chips wouldn’t require silicon, so we could see computers in windows, textiles or even coffee cups
