Once the technology is working, the ability to run a CPU on so little power would suggest that the system could run for a long time on a current technology battery. This would be a great benefit for portable computing devices (although current computer software would run very slowly if the clock speed had to be limited to 1 MHz).

Wow reducing heat dissipation by one 1,000 to 10,000 times is really an achievement in itself. Any idea when is the team targetting to build its first prototype ?

That is very good concept and wonderful implementation. This concept has huge potential market potential. We await more implmentation.

What is the main reason that make it operate only less than 1MHz?

I have seen very similar work more than 10 years ago. It was cool but I don't think this kind of circuit can operate at speed faster than 1MHz.
