Fully biological computers are getting closer to reality. Scientists at Stanford University today announced they have created a new type of transistor, the most basic part of a computer (and almost all other modern electronics), that is made entirely using genetic material, and works inside of living bacteria. The new biological transistor is actually better than its inorganic counterpart in some ways, according to the researchers, who say their device will be able to help build fully functioning computers within the cells of living organisms — plants and animals alike — in the future.
The technology and science has been pushing the progress in last couple of years really massively. I believe we are not far a way from some major breakthrough. Something really big is behind the doors, something on scale of discovering electricity.
