^ why will the world end in 2012? i'm interested to know why...

anyway this is very fascinating to me

Some esoteric American centuries ago predicted the world will end on Dec. 12, 2012. Some idiotic American now believe their story.

Not to rain on MIT's parade (I'm even a former alumn)... but a few things to put this into perspective.

25nm features is not really very impressive. The smallest feature on the 32nm node is not much larger than this .(note: there are features smaller than 32nm on the 32nm node and this is true in all recent tech nodes).

Lithograph dictating your design/layout? While you could potentially get around this, it would certainly cost either die space or performance.

So basically the researches have come up with a cheap way to pattern the 32nm node with significant design restrictions (and no mention of other key lithography constraints like registration and overlay capabilities).

Read of post above you'll know I don't believe in that Aztec non-sense.
