Scientists Claim Transparent Memory Chips are Coming
Researchers at Rice University have created flexible, transparent memory using silicon oxide as the active component in memory processing and storage. Apparently, Rice researchers have been hard at work making the transparent phone a reality – they’re already looking at how they can combine the new memory technology with flexible touchscreens, transparent electrodes, transparent batteries, and transparent circuitry that have been developed in other labs at Rice.
The nuts and bolts of how that technology works is explained in the video below by Dr. James Tour, who runs the lab that successfully created the new memory tech. He’ll be one of the many people you can thank when you head outside with the iPhone 8 strapped to your wrist.
