After decades of research, scientists from Lancaster University in the UK have invented and patented what’s best described as universal computer memory.
The are two things that make this new memory revolutionary, the first is the data doesn’t have to be refreshed constantly. With traditional memory, the data is volatile and must be continuously ‘refreshed’ to avoid it being lost. This ability, makes it possible for computers that do not need to boot up and could instantaneously and imperceptibly go into sleep mode.
Universal Computer Memory’s second advantage is that it uses an incredibly small amount of energy. The amount is about a 100 times less energy than current memory.
