IBM Corp. will unveil a pair of tiny chips today that can transmit huge volumes of data by beaming light pulses through plastic fibers, an approach that uses far less energy than pushing a stream of electrons through copper wires. This set of prototype chips is a specific type of processor called a transceiver -- a fancy name for a device that can both send and receive data.
Is this cool or what?
