'Sticky' silicon could speed data

Intel

kestasjk writes "The BBC is reporting that Intel has found a way to manufacture light generating Indium Phosphate and light recieving and data processing silicon on the same chip. The breakthrough could mean cheaper and higher speed computer networks and help to speed up the transfer of data inside computers.

Perhaps instead of high speed links in your computer communicating serially through wires the data will be beamed directly from chip to chip!"
