Towards Computing with Water Droplets – Superhydrophobic Droplet Logic - Aalto University

Posted By aquadoc in Miscellaneous

Researchers in Aalto University have developed a new concept for computing, using water droplets as bits of digital information. This was enabled by the discovery that upon collision with each other on a highly water-repellent surface, two water droplets rebound like billiard balls.

In the work, published in the journal Advanced Materials, the researchers experimentally determined the conditio http://www.aalto.fi -
