A power hungry internet that requires less power.

High powered computers that rival NASA. Broadband speeds that can boggle the mind.

According to Scandinavian researchers, this is a new possible reality.

In a study released last week, scientists from universities in Sweden and Denmark said

They used a laser-powered chip to pass through a fiber optic cable in one second.

Transmitted data almost twice the value of the Internet - a world record.

Physicists said the chip used fiber optic cables to transmit data

The swirling motion was achieved using a laser and a special light-making device.

The amount of data researchers sent, about 1.84 petabytes, every second across the Internet

That's much more than about 1 petabyte of transmitted data. (A petabyte of data is about a million gigabytes.)
