I think the challenge to Moore's law will be economic instead of engineering. We will find a way to do it but it may not be cost effective. 14nm is already teetering on the line of whether or not the shrink makes up for the cost.

I wonder if what was displayed in a simulation could be applied to real life. Though it is theoretically possible to scale down chips to 9nm, how many companies have the technical capabilities to do that, along with the financial power? Would it be feasible or profitable?
