American scientists have succeeded in creating a computer consisting of carbon nanotubes. Many researchers have tried to achieve this for several years.
Researchers at Stanford University succeeded in inventing the world's first nanotube computer. It consists of 178 transistors, which in turn include tens of thousands of carbon nanotubes. They are characterized by high strength and good electrical conductivity. So far, the new computer is still quite primitive, but it already allows you to run a "light" operating system, perform calculations, and even supports multitasking. The developers themselves claim that this is a real full-fledged computer.
The sponsor of the project, an expert from the American National Scientific Society, Mikhail Roko, claims that after the new technology is finalized, the researchers expect to create faster computers than those currently on the market. They will have fewer internal components and will consume up to 10 times less power during operation.
