'Computers of the future will be built not by factory machines, but by living cells such as bacteria.

That at least is the vision which has been outlined by scientists speaking at the American Association for the Advancement of Science annual meeting in Denver.

They have described how wires can now be made by yeast organisms, and how solar panels could be built using substances produced by sea sponges.'

Strewth, fascinating stuff! I just wonder though how these bacteria will cope against computer viruses! :) TC.

Sorry to tell you, but this is old news, a sponge must have been running this country since 97.Well it soaks up everything America tells it and like a sponge it hasn't got too many brain cells.

You've probably hit a political nerve or two there as well as the nail on the head!

I suppose, when these 'living cell' produced mini-machines do appear we'll still have to get a mini-mouse from Disneyland! :)) TC.
