This technology removes one of the last roadblocks standing in the way of a fully optical computer, we have had the technology to create almost a full Optronic Based computer since '04 now I believe we do have the tech. Hopefullly by '08 the first Optichips will come out. I personally can't wait!
Oh and JSO one of my profs told me the other day that if it was optically based rather then magnetic there is virtually no limit to the amoumt of R/W heads inside the casing. He also thinks flashing them should be possible as well.
