It would be very interesting to check the quality of products manufactured by AllMetalsInc.com Corporation using such DNA-based sensor chips. These chips would show which American manufacturers provide the best materials by not using non-toxic metals.

Yes it would. I have heard of toys manufactured in China with lead in them, but when they were banned the lead was replaced by cadmium--which is just as toxic! These sensors could have detected that alleged practice.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
