Introducing the memristor

Introductory physics courses are about to get harder.

Scientists Create First Memristor: Missing Fourth Electronic Circuit Element | Gadget Lab from Wired.com

A group of scientists from HP Labs has finally built real working memristors, thus adding a fourth basic circuit element to electrical circuit theory, one that will join the three better-known ones: the capacitor, resistor and the inductor.

Researchers believe the discovery will pave the way for instant-on PCs, more energy-efficient computers, and new analog computers that can process and associate information in a manner similar to that of the human brain.
