Submission + - Researchers Create Flexible Plastic Flash Memory (technologyreview.com)

An anonymous reader writes: Researchers at the University of Tokyo, led by electrical engineering professor Takao Someya, have created a new kind of plastic, low-cost, flash memory storage device. Although not as dense or stable as it's silicon cousin, the plastic flash memory is useful because of it's low cost, simple manufacturing process, and potential use in e-paper or other flexible devices. To demonstrate the memory, Someya's group integrated a 676-memory-cell device with a rubber pressure sensor. The flexible sensor-memory device, which is less than 700 micrometers thick, can record pressure patterns and retain them for up to a day. The plastic device is described today in the journal Science.
