Invention of the Day: 3D memristor circuit.

Memristor is the fourth fundamental passive electronic circuit element (the other three are resistor, capacitor, and inductor). Memristor "remembers" the amount of current that passed through it. In the video below Stan Williams explains how it works.

An HP patent application (Strukov, Williams, Shteyn WO2011014156) published earlier this year shows a 3D structure that can implement a wide array of electronic applications in a compact form factor.
