back to article Boffins peg co-polymers for cheap chip construction

Scientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have devised a potential chip-making technique that is the molecular equivalent of Doodles for Fun, a 1970s toy which kids used to make pictures by stretching coloured rubber bands on a pegged board. The MIT team's pegs are silicon posts etched onto a chip using a standard …

Brilliant

It's like going back to the start.

You could draw a circuit on a piece of card with a graphite pencil. Connect the ends with battery and you have a circuit board.

Take a photo of a complex drawing and add a few gadgets and print in silver. A pcb fore runner.

Now the stuff is reverting to type with micro micro circuitry.

Next: Do it in diamonds. Well done whoever thought of that one.
