    9 days ago - By Tech Radar

    Our technology has been developing at a rapid pace in recent decades, and new research suggests that we could soon be entering a new age of tech innovation with even more advancements thanks to mind-blowingly affordable plastic processors. So affordable in fact, that it's estimated these processors could be mass-produced for less than a penny. As reported by IEEE Spectrum , a team comprised of researchers from the University of Illinois designed 4-bit and 8-bit processors and saw an eighty-one percent success rate for the 4-bit models. Team leader and University of Illinois professor...
