Tiny Brain-Like Computer Created
Get a load of this, scientists say they have designed a machine just a few molecules in size that actually mimics how the brain works. Researchers believe this can be used as the foundation for a super powerful computer or used to power a complex microscopic machine.
The idea is to hook this new gadget up with other molecules — either copies of itself or different compounds other scientists have invented. For instance, researchers have created a host of machines just a molecule or so large over the last decade or two — motors, propellers, switches, elevators, sensors and so on. The new invention might offer a way to control all those other compounds to work as a whole.
