Researchers at Hewlett-Packard have made a new discovery in circuitry that may enable computers, cell phones and other devices to hold more memory while taking up less energy than modern technology allows. It had been theorized for almost 40 years, but researchers announced on Wednesday that they finally had proof that basic electrical circuits have four fundamentals, rather than three.The fourth element, called a memory resistor, or memristor for short, was first considered by Leon Chua of...
