Beyond Silicon: Transistors without Semiconductors Developed by Researchers
Quote:
For decades, electronic devices have been getting smaller, and smaller. It is now possible to place billions of transistors on a single silicon chip. But transistors based on semiconductors can continue getting smaller only to a certain degree, it is generally believed. Great minds of the planet think how they can further shrink the transistor with a semiconductor, but some other look in a completely different direction.

“At the rate the current technology is progressing, in 10 or 20 years, they will not be able to get any smaller. Also, semiconductors have another disadvantage: they waste a lot of energy in the form of heat,” said Yoke Khin Yap, a physicist of Michigan Technological University.

A nanotech fix for nicotine dependence

Quote:
A chemical component present in the nightshade family of plants is one of the world’s most tenaciously addictive substances. It is the nicotine contained in tobacco and found in high concentrations in cigarettes. Smoking remains a global scourge; in the U.S. it is the leading source of preventable death.

Yung Chang and her colleagues at Arizona State University’s Biodesign Institute have launched an ambitious new project, designed to attack nicotine dependence in a radically new way. The research effort, pursued under a new $3.3 million grant from the National Institute of Drug Abuse, will attempt to design a vaccine conferring immunity to nicotine, using nanoscale structures assembled from DNA.

This strikes chord with me Bill as I see the end results of smoking particularly and it ain't pleasant. The nicotine mentioned has been considered more addictive than heroin for a long time now.

By the by did you know that we eat a lot of plants from this genus too things like potatoes and capsicums to name but two Solanaceae - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Troll Science
I thought this idea was pretty funny. Probably one of the very few 4chan memes worth porting over to SevenForums, as it isn't TOTALLY stupid (also doesn't contain offensive images). The idea is to post science scenarios that would never work but have some logic in how it might work. Troll Science...

Another Completed Science Experiment & my 3000th post !
I just finished a new custom " Doc " built computer last week. So I have had it running to make sure there were No BSOD's ! Seems like it is going 88mph, but my 2 fingers on the keyboard are not keeping up with it. Here are a few screen Snips & pics: The HD is a Hitachi 2-TB.
