Extreme Ultraviolet Chip Manufacturing Process Technology Closer To Reality

kalyptein Re:Fabrication sizes (49 comments)

You may think you're joking, but there is actually a microfab technique based on shrinky-dinks. Pattern some thermoplastic and then cook it to shrink the dimensions. It's more for creating micro-scale forms on the cheap, rather than for these sort of nano-scale silicon features, but the idea isn't totally crazy.

Cats "Exploit" Humans By Purring

kalyptein Turnabout is fair play (503 comments)

My girlfriend can produce a high-pitched meow that sounds rather kittenish. It's like a harpoon in her cat's brain; he has no choice to come over and investigate, regardless of where he was and what he was doing.
