Gallery: Caltech Develops ‘Indestructible’ Self-Healing Microchips for ...


A team of engineers from the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) has developed a way to create computer chips that can repair themselves. The new chips can reportedly fix problems “ranging from less-than-ideal battery power to total transistor failure” in microseconds. These self-healing integrated chips may sound like the stuff of science-fiction, but if the team’s research is successful, they could potentially transform the electronics industry.
