Now, computer powered by 'electronic blood'

London, Oct. 19 : IBM has unveiled a prototype of its new brain-inspired computer that is fed by "electronic blood."


The computer firm said that it learns from nature by building computers fuelled and cooled by a liquid, like human minds, the BBC reported.

The human brain has phenomenal computing power and uses only 20 watts of energy - an efficiency that the computer company is keen to match.

The firm's new "redox flow" system pumps "electronic blood" through a computer, and carries power in and taking heat out.

A prototype was shown this week at the technology giant's Zurich lab by Dr Patrick Ruch and Dr Bruno Michel.
