Physicists at the University of California, Riverside might have just stumbled upon something that could very well change the way computers are in the future. They managed to achieve a breakthrough known as a “spin computer,” where it will be based in part on graphene. This might very well usher in the era of machines which never need to boot up and can remain on all the time without using any power in the process. Thanks to tunneling spin injection technology, it will rely on an electron’s spin state to efficiently store and process data. Spin computers will basically generate less heat without compromising on performance, but will instead be a whole lot faster. While it works in the labs at the moment, a real world working prototype for the masses would be even better. We await with bated breath.
