Submission + - Physicist proposes a new type of computing at SXSW (gigaom.com) 2

SpankiMonki writes: Joshua Turner, a physicist at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, has proposed using the orbits of electrons around the nucleus of an atom as a new means to generate the binary states used in computing. Turner calls his idea orbital computing.

Turner points to recent discoveries (including a new material that allows rapid switching of it's electron states and new low-power terahertz laser technology) that could lead to the development of a computer with vastly improved performance over current technologies.
