    That's intriguing - storage with built-in error checking / correction, encryption, etc. would be pretty incredible. I appreciate it's early days but if memristors come anywhere close to achieving their theoretical potential this could be game-changing in a few years' time.

    Ha i was just about to post in the news about the new silicon oxide chips if we would ever see it citing memristors as an example of something we'd never heard about since. Proved me wrong.

    Well this was first announced in 2008 and still no working prototype at the moment, it sounds like they moving in the right direction with it but I would not expect to see a working prototype until 2012.

    This stuff just blows my mind - not so much the product itself, but the fact that its existence was mathematically deduced long before they were ever able to actually make one. The Wikipedia article actually has some nice info:

    That kind of advanced maths is just beyond me, sadly!

    Considering they were originally proposed in 1971, the fact they've created them and are announcing business partnerships (ie are not pipe dreams) is pretty impressive.
