Here is a link to a story about a bacteria based computer. They are not calling it "Roddy" yet (from Slant) but that would be kind of cool.

The computer is being used to solve the "pancake problem".

They are working on quantum computers already, now biological ones. How soon until the rest of Slant comes true?
