Scientists from the University of Cambridge have created, for the first time, a new type of microchip that allows information to move in three dimensions -- from left to right, back to front, and top to bottom.


Word of the Day
orbity
  • A bereavement by loss of parents or children; the state of being orbate; orbation.
The word 'orbity' ultimately comes from a Latin word meaning 'bereaved'.
