Memristors Going Commercial

A neat article at IEEE Spectrum about new technologies that will lead to the commercialization of the memristor. Recall that a memristor is like a resistor with memory - it changes its resistance as a function of current flow, and then remembers that resistance even if the part is then idle. This has magnificent potential to revolutionize computing because, like the amazing neurons in our brains, memristors can both process and store information at the same time.
