Ref "By 2020, You Could Be Using an Optical SuperComputer"...

One can say decades are marked in technological achievements where one achievement is the foundation for the next. The 60s, the transisitor, the 70s the mainframe, the 80s the PC, the 90s networking, the 2000s telecommunications. In the early 2000s, several optical components companies tried to R&D data, address, and control signals on bi-directional buses - to make an optical interface between chips. Miniturization of leds/lasers onto chip wasn't there yet but the concept could radically change board design and processing efficiency. Today, if chips become optical internally and matched with optical interfaces, you're likly looking at the next tech advancement, then quantum computing. Deus Ex here we come.

I'll probably still have to turn every usb connector twice before it fits.

At this point I think it's all about cost but I'm all for Deus Ex tech. I believe NASA is already in the mix and going to test a prototype optical cpu anytime now.
