 making machines don't like unstable electricity!

i was at a conference last week and heard there was some research in Japan into computing that didn't require electricity as we know it to function.. but haven't been able to follow that up.. doesn't any one know any more about this?

The main one I know is dna computing - chemically based. I think there's are a lot of research projects into alternatives to the current electrical/von neumann standard going on. -- =============================================================== Paul Brown PO Box 413, Cotton Tree QLD 4558, Australia mob 0419 72 74 85 fax +1 309 216 9900 =============================================================== Visiting Fellow - Birkbeck ===============================================================
