Every once in a while, the physicists who get obscene research dollars have to put buzzwords on their explanations to justify future dollars. That's what this sounds like to me.

Calling it "perpetual motion" when it lasts 40 seconds seems a bit odd. Even if it was 40 hours, that is still a long way from perpetual...

It is interesting but tough to say that this is super conductivity as it will be quite hard to find the resistance offered by this circulating ring.

Colin - a question. Once the flow is stopped by the laser, what starts it again? It is not clear whether or not the flow needs restarting from an external source, e.g. electric field or what? What am I missing?

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.
