IBM Creates Self-Assembling Chips Modeled After Nature

IBM is taking a cue from nature to build the next generation computer chips. IBM borrowed the natural pattern-creating process that forms seashells, snowflakes and tooth enamel to help create next-generation chips. The method form trillions of holes to create vacuums as insulation around the miles of nano-scale wires packed next to each other inside the chip.

This is an exciting time for the chip industry. Scientists are making other breakthroughs besides this, such as chips that can morph to be more efficient at certain types of calculations as well as chips that can be repaired by a process similar to ROM flashing.
