We’ve so soon got wearable tech down when it arrives to lighting and an augmented reality interface, but what about memory? Two NASA scientists have figured out a way to weave copper wire into a form for memory storage.
Jin and Meyya of the Center for Nanotechnology at NASA Ames Research Center formulated the memory fiber. The intention utilizes two 1-mm copper and copper oxide wires interweave in a cross pattern sandwiched unitedly by a little piece of platinum. The resulting construction forms a resistive memory circuit that can retain information, which can be read and rewritten when a present is utilized, for more than 100 days.
This e-textile design arrives the similar main hatched properties of actual fabric, so it would be reasonably simpleton to form vesture memory into any piece of clothing. Now entire we require to do to make ourselves a actual walking-talking mobile-machine is to put unitedly entire the mobile sensor, memory, processing, shows, and power source answer into one package—that will hopeful appear cooler than the “cyborgs” in Snow Crash.
