A New (Manchurian) Candidate


The long and winding road of electronics theory and engineering and the discrete electrical components that it has relied on are surprisingly stable; resistors, capacictors, inductors, etc. and, of course, the famous transistor.

We've made a great deal of progress with the increased level of skill, materials-knowledge and intricacy with which we've engineered these devices over the years, on the whole though, the "toolbox" has remained remarkably consistent.

It's worthwhile noting though, that there is a relative new kid on the block, who may not only ammend the way we look at electronics, but indeed, may begin to allow the electronics to look back at us...
