South Korean scientists have developed plastic non-volatile memory devices that can hold their content without the need of much power.
Professor Ree Moon-hor at Pohang University of Science and Technology, said the new devices can be bent or folded, allowing them to take the forms of foldable laptops or wearable computers.
The new memory devices can operate at a very low voltage range. As a result, they hardly consume power, greatly extending battery life.
Moon-hor said that the chips don't require a maintained power supply for data storage and are ideal for mobile gadgets such as cell phones or laptops.
