Scientists develop rewritable ‘silk drive’ that can be implanted in humans

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, futurism

The silk drive is still in the proof-of-concept stage and “unlikely in the foreseeable future to match the speed and storage capacity of state-of-the-art solid-state devices at a competitive cost,” according to Chinese and US researchers, who promised “substantial improvements in the speed and storage capacity of silk drives.”


Scientists at CAS and two separate US universities have jointly developed a storage medium made from silk proteins that can be implanted in the human body.
