There’s an increasing trend to start producing gadgets that are getting thinner and thinner with each generation. Droid RAZR unveiled by motorola, which is based on the legacy of the RAZR feature phone, will most probably end up being one of the thinnest smartphones to date. But how much smaller/thinner could we make our devices? Well if the scientists at Northwestern University manage to commercialize their new material, perhaps it won’t be too long.

Scientists at Northwestern University decided to look at the problem of teeny-tiny circuits in ever-shrinking electronic devices in a new way, by coming up with a material that can be a resistor, a rectifier, a diode or a transistor depending on signals from a computer.
