@hm I don't think it will in the short to medium term. The fact that the strategic investors are Ericsson and Nokia Siemens Networks suggests this promising for long haul optical networking, the old Bookham Technology hunting ground.

Will this lead to optical computing in near future? IBM may also be interested in similar technology.

Very impressive. This is to me a good investment. This is the main statement: "Skorpios has demonstrated the viability of their technology. This funding will enable the commercialization and widespread deployment of their solution and has the potential to transform and broaden the reach of the communications industry,"

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
