Submission + - Evidence of the dawn of the carbon age (

Lorien_the_first_one writes: Technology Review of MIT reports that carbon nanotubes are being used to fabricate complex circuits. From the article, "The first three-dimensional carbon nanotube circuits, made by researchers at Stanford University, could be an important step in making nanotube computers that could be faster and use less power than today's silicon chips. Such a computer is still at least 10 years off, but the Stanford work shows it is possible to make stacked circuits using carbon nanotubes. Stacked circuits cram more processing power in a given area, and also do a better job dissipating waste heat."
