It's right beside the flux capacitor, in front of the universal solvent

Somehow the wonks at Atom Chip Corporation, makers of fine vapourware like quantum memory, managed to get recognition at CES, as if they had a real product as opposed to a questionable prototype.  While you do have to admire the moxy it took to manage that feat, it lends credence to the tales of the decline of CES that some attendees have come back with.  Drop by Slashdot for a look at the history as well as this years recognition of the accomplishments of the Atom Chip Corporation.

"The CES 2008 Innovations Design and Engineering Awards Showcase honored the Atom Chip Corporation, which was exhibiting

the same 100GB, 500GB, and 1TB 'quantum optical' memory chips back in 2006. We actually wandered by, but long gone are

the 'SolarMemory' chips, and he didn't know anything about Duke Nuk'em Forever. A little easy digging shows that they'd

been making the same extraordinary claims and exhibiting prototypes at CES during the past three years, long enough to

make 'atom chip hoax' the fourth suggestion on typing 'atom chip' into Google. I'm amused that the 'preeminent' panel of

judges failed their vetting and gatekeeping functions. But I fear that Atom Chip will gather investors based on their

recognition at CES, and continue in the game for many years to come, while honors at CES become a Hall of Shame."
