How come I can't comment on the article?
Anyway: this would be amazing but in 5 years... who knows what else we will have by then?
You can now!
This sounds promising, lots of great things were discovered by accident.
Sounds good, can see Pricing killing it tho.
So long as yield from this technique is good it shouldn't be too expensive the raw materials are cheaper as all you need is sand not any metals from reading the blurb on the journal. Be interesting to see if it lives up to it's claims they make it sound like a wonder material.
"Keep Moore's Law on track for another few decades"? Another 3 or 4 years perhaps!
The moore (heh) discoveries to better tech the better. Keep 'em coming!
But can it play crysis?
Sounds pretty damned interesting, however I think that this will probably be the limit of silicon oxide. Unfortunately, after that we're looking at more exotic (and thus more expensive) compounds.
Well, the stuff that ultra-pure silicon is made of is, technically, sand.
You might try however to sell ordinary sand to a silicon company...good luck!
I forsee beaches across the world stripped of its sand at night by rich men who happened to suddenly appear. 4 x 4s lined up all over the coast with people dumping as much sand as possible into their cars.
Quite true Kenny, why only the other week I found a chip in the back pocket of my pants, it had shrunk to half its size and was covered in a quite strange coloured fluff, however a quick rinse off in the cats water bowl and a splash of vinegar and it was bleedin delicious. And to think if I hadn't been searching for that half eaten fried egg I would never have found it. Bravo for accidents old bean.
You, sir, win the Internets.
