18 May 2010—A team of scientists from Japan and the United States reports that it has figured out how to build a massively parallel computer-like device using organic molecules. But some experts wonder how useful it could be. The new computer, which was described in a recent issue of Nature Physics, is just a couple of molecular layers thick and mimics some aspects of the way the human brain performs calculations.
