Manu Prakash has created a computer that runs on water. He used the unique Physics of moving water droplets to design a clock that is required in various electronic devices including a computer. Here are some amazing facts about the technology and the man behind it.
We often run to rescue our electronic gadgets whenever they come in touch with water. But Manu Prakash, an Indian-American scientist, has created a computer that runs on water.
Prakash, Assistant Professor of Bio-engineering at Stanford, teamed up with two of his students, Jim Cybulski and Georgios Katsikis, to design a unique computer that works on the Physics of moving water droplets.
Here are 8 things you need to about Prakash and his amazing technology –
1. The computer uses water instead of electrons to send the data.
2. The team designed arrays of tiny iron bars on glass slides that look something like a Pac-Man maze. They laid a blank glass slide on top and sandwiched a layer of oil in between.
3. This was followed by carefully injecting the individual water droplets that had been infused with tiny magnetic nano-particles.
