IBM has unveiled a nanophotonic chip, which integrates both electrical and optical nano-devices on the same piece of silicon. A thousand times faster than today's most powerful petaflop machines, such computers would have processing power near that of the human brain. The technology may create powerful exaflop supercomputers in five years. "

Maybe the Singularity is very near ... and that reminds me of Raymond Kurzweil's The Singularity Is Near: When Humans Transcend Biology

This reminds me of an article posted here a few months ago. About what I, not knowing much about these things, could only describe as a "light circuit."
It seems there's so much technology in the pipeline right now, at this very moment, like in this article you've posted, that has the potential to just blow the lid off everything.
Crazy.
