Self-disinfecting mobile displays could be less than two years away

Corning introduces laser fiber optic USB cable

Digital systems are notorious for bottlenecks. It’s no good having a blazing, overclocked PC and an internet connection like a firehose if the USB cable between them is like a straw.
