By the end of the decade, the Internet would be able to pack its own boxes, which would be powered by a tiny chip.
And that chip could eventually make the boxes that we take for granted, such as a suitcase, more convenient.
And it could, in turn, make it possible to make more of them, and more of those boxes.
But while the chips in the packing boxes were once called microprocessors, they’re now called “memory-hard chips,” or MHDs.

We’re still using the same old things, but with a new chip inside.
