    IBM unveils nanotech breakthrough

    Dec. 8 — IBM is tinkering with a new material that could drastically slash the costs of “drawing” circuits on semiconductors, and the stuff is a close relative to tennis shoe glue. At the International Electron Devices Meeting in Washington, D.C., this week IBM researchers will present a paper showing how they have developed polymer molecules that can assemble themselves into tiny, precise and predictable patterns. The resulting hexagonal pattern then serves as a stencil for mapping out circuits on silicon wafers.

    From rat poison and sand to sand and tennis sneaker glue,what genius idea will come next.
    The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

    i heard they were looking at using spider-web silk for interconnects between SOI and package pins.

    I guess they are looking to organic properties, since nature is the best scientist.
