Core memory returns …

I saw this linked off of /.. Core memory returns, though this core memory is not using magnetization of cores, but motion of cores.

Since this is mechanical, I wonder how they are going to protect against shocks sufficient to exceed the coefficient of static friction … not to mention eigen-modes of the long racetrack wires. This should be fun to watch as it develops.икони

  1. No, it’s not mechanical, though the article may make it read as though it is. It’s the magnetic domains that are moved from place to place, not physical magnets.

  2. Tthat sounds like bubble memory … maybe not precisely …

    Gonna have to get over to a research library and actually read about this technology.
