If Intel's new SRAM built on the 45nm process just isn't small enough, researchers from Columbia University have managed to build a transistor with individual molecules and nanotubes

EETimes is reporting that Columbia University's Nanoscale Science and Engineering Center managed to pair nanotubes with organic molecules to create a transistor.  So far, the only application for the new transistor seems to be for a Ph sensor, but the relatively new NSEC has several other open projects particularly geared for nanotube electromechanics.

Implantable Tracking Chip

Been saying this for a while now, even check it out on another Anandtech thread....

This would be great for implantable tracking devices to monitor vital functions and gps location. Verizon Wireless just announced GPS tracking of cellphones intended for monitoring children.

But this nanotech would be best used into implantable circuitry to track sex offenders and for parents concerned about their children.

Instead of tracking sex offenders we need to rehab them. Throwing them in jail for a few years obviously does not do this. If the law says they're free then they should be free, the same as the rest of us. Implanting trackers on kids and ex-cons? Whatever happened to human rights...

WTF do Implantable Tracking Chip have to do with this news? Man, you're weird.

Agreed... we're talking about the ability to shrink transistors to fractions of their sizes. About integrating a full powered CPU into a device the size of a cell phone (albeit a long time from now) and this guy is talking about tracking sex offenders?

My style of GPS tracking of sex offenders is already up and running. Put 'em in the grave. That way you know exactly where they are...
