RIP USB: These new cables thinner than a strand of hair are 10x faster

USB, Thunderbolt and HDMI could see a massive leap in performance according to new research. Currently, researchers are studying the affects of data transmission using thin plastic polymer versus copper, and the findings are incredible. 

As presented at the February IEEE International Solid-State Circuits Conference and reported by MIT, new research by Raytheon, Intel, the Naval Research Laboratory and the Office of Naval Research suggests that polymer cables as thin as a strand of hair can transmit information ten times faster than USB.
