Download Your Hardware!

Download your hardware? you say. Impossible! Hardware is the physical stuff that makes your computer or consumer product run. Software is the digital instructions that tell it how to run. The latter can be upgraded, but the former needs to be replaced.

Well, that all might change by end of the decade. Today Hewlett-Packard has announced a new nanocomputing breakthrough that would allow circuits to be modified and upgraded without being replaced. Wowzer!
