Memristors .. the work continues

Now thisis interesting …
In particular this little paragraph:

It would seem that these devices could be manufactured using injet style printers (which is what HP used). The implications could be extremely recyclable computers. It would also seem that instead of having a central processor, you could make an extremely decentralized memory control circuit which could be physically altered without regard to available voltage (on/off state). Therefore you could change the physical construction of the device, adding and subtracting components"hot" or “cold”, in essence creating an infinitely adjustable brain structure, never losing data and being able to add or subtract components which are faulty or which have been improved. Combined with controllable nanites, one could envision a self healing or improving computing device that could theoretically, increase and improve itself without ever losing it “original” program, therefore leaving the “kernel” original and adding more “kernels”, which would be in line with the decentralized nature of the memristors. If the add on circuitry doesn’t perform as needed, the original memory could cut out the faulty circuit and never be affected by it’s removal, as the varying state of voltage to that area would be isolated, and original device protected by either momentarily cutting the voltage to itself and then turning back on by a timer or other device that would sense when the relevant cycle has been completed. I imagine a ball of non conducting liquid, containing all the necessary ingredients (titanium, platinum molecules, etc.) , placed in this sphere, the original memristors CPU and nanites, which eventually build a infinitely adjustable artificial brain. Or not.
