Submission + - Engineers build Self-healing Chips Capable of Repairing Themselves->

hypnosec writes: Team of researchers and engineers at California Institute of Technology (Caltech) has developed ‘self-healing’ chips that would heal themselves within a few microseconds and recover from faults that may range from less battery power to complete transistor failure. The engineers demonstrated the self-healing capabilities through tiny amplifiers; a total of 76 of them alongside everything else that is needed to carry out self-healing – all of it able to fit on a penny. The team went to the extremes in testing their work by damaging the amplifiers at several places using high-power lasers. In less than a second the chips were able to develop work-around thereby healing themselves.

Somebody ought to cross ball point pens with coat hangers so that the pens will multiply instead of disappear.
