Transparent, flexible memory chips could replace flash
According to Dr. James M. Tour, a synthetic organic chemist at Houston's Rice University, flash memory devices can only be built smaller for another six to seven years - at that point, they will reach a technological barrier. Already, however, Tour and his colleagues have developed a new type of memory chip, which they believe could replace flash in thumb drives, smartphones and computers. Not only does their chip allow more data to be stored in a given space, but it can also be folded like paper, withstand temperatures of up to 1,000ºF (538ºC), and is transparent - this means that devices' screens could also serve as their memory...
