The Next Little Thing

Abstract:
But in the late afternoon, I'm suddenly jolted awake by a physical gadget straight out of the future—a working nanotech computer chip. One of the few long-term projects at HP Labs is a small nanochip fabrication setup that makes circuits one-third the size of the most advanced chips currently on the market.

The technology is simple to describe, if incredibly hard to produce. Instead of using light, HP's nano-imprint machine stamps the circuit design by squeezing a drop of liquid into a mold, then hardening it into a grooved circular disk. After that, it's chip manufacturing as usual—the grooves are filled with platinum to make wire circuits.
