[ENG] IMEC creates flexible microprocessor with organic semiconductors

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Quote:
...Researchers from IMEC have created a cheap (potentially 1/10th the cost of silicon chips), bendable microprocessor by layering a plastic substrate, gold circuits, organic dielectric, and a pentacene organic semiconductor to create an 8-bit logic circuit with 4000 transistors.
Slightly more at source. Bendable displays have been around for awhile -- but bendable microprocessors?!? The future is going to be awesome

Sure it's bendable. Paperclips are bendable too! But... is it "flexible"

Organic semiconductors have been teasing us with the possibility of computationally-inclined clothing for years, but until now we could only dream about our pants being the computer.

At this point the British readers have to remember that Americans call trousers pants, where as pants in britain are what Americans call under pants. Sounds very weird when you write "IM OVERCLOCKING MY PANTS DUDE, by lying in the snow".
