A piece of the future internet has surfaced in a lab in Japan: a memory chip that stores bits of light.

Researchers at Japanese telecom giant NTT have built an optical random access memory (o-RAM) chip — a conceptual cousin to the electronic memory in your computer. The goal is not to make a light-speed replacement for DRAM. That’s out of the realm of possibilities for the foreseeable future. Rather, the idea is to make fast, efficient storage buffers for internet routers and the communications switches that connect thousands of servers in data centers.
