Would you use a device with a bacterial screen?

By | January 4, 2012
Instead of LED-based display screens, researchers in UC San Diego have come up with a bacterial display screen. Bacteria shouldn't require as much battery as LEDs, but they may require other inputs… it's not as much eye candy as your colourful LED-based screen, but it certainly is pretty.

And this is only the beginning. Living organisms are capable of doing more than just producing flourescent lights in response to environmental stimuli. As cellular automata, organic computing, quantum computing, and traditional silicon-based computing converge, there is great potential for computers that operate on a greener basis, as well as computers that can do things more efficiently than we can today with help of alternate computing techniques. And potentially a new class of security that needs to be introduced.
