A while back, there was some /. posting (way back when I used to waste my time reading that site), on Nantero. This is one of those new nano-tech startups that announced some fantastic technology a while back. The nutshell of it is that they are doing some neat stuff with carbon fiber nanotubes to create the next generation memory system. You can see a movie of it on their site. If they succeed, they will disrupt the entire computer memory landscape since it is non-volatile, super fast, and high-density.
Today, I was thinking about them. Often companies announce things and then disappear forever in the vapor.
Well, they look like they are going to release a 1mbit device this year. Pretty neat. Lets see if they pull it off.
