Nanomechanical Memory, Rod Logic next?

Emeka writes "Intimations of Rod Logic "…The rise of nanotechnology has led many researchers to revisit mechanical computing…It turns out that… nanomechanical memory cells, due to their size and speed, could outperform their counterparts in magnetoelectric systems…" Are we seeing the precursors to the rod logic computers predicted by Eric Drexler? "…The device closely resembles silicon nanoscale oscillators that researchers have been making for years and could be made by the millions using standard chipmaking techniques. Nanoscale oscillators vibrate at high speeds, and are being developed largely as compact, high-frequency sensors and communications devices. The memory cell requires closer control than oscillators in order to be switched between the two flexed states…"TRNMag"
