    Can you explain this a bit more? Most people think it's spam.

    No no no no no. That's not spam.


    This is spam


    (I emailed that fellow, and he swears that this is real, and that it will be presented in 2006. when asked why he doesn't debunk internet claims of fraud, he says that the internet doesn't bother him, that they will see come CES 2006)

    Therefore, that isn't actually spam either, I guess. Be neat if he's up front and that's real, but I mean come on... Still, I'm sure when cars came out, people wondered where you put the hay to feed the horses, so I suppose we'll just have to wait and see.

    Thats the third time I've seen that Atomic chip hoax on a forum in this pass two months, it's obviously going around.

    I think the intention was to show a website for new gadgets. I might me wrong though.

    Re: the newest gadgets

    From what I can tell, the claimed invention is a new type of non-volatile memory using something called "quantum-optical technology".

    I'm not sure whether this is a hoax or not. The US patents are real according to the USPTO (which has accepted ridiculous patents like the one-click patent). They were registered in the period from 1995 to 1997. However, the website is amateurish and some of the marketing slogans are obviously false. For example, "nanomicrons", don't exist, although their proper name, "femtometres", refers to a dimension much smaller than a single atom. The technical information appears much more logical. Much suspicion surrounds the so-called "inventor", Shimon Gendlin, a Russian immigrant to Israel.

    If it is for real, expect Atom Chip to be bought by a larger company. If it is a hoax, expect it to scam venture capitalists and go bankrupt.
