Thanks to rapid progress in microelectronics technology, a new, nomadic lifestyle has become widespread these days. People, regardless of location, enjoy greater connectivity through communication networks and intelligent electronic terminals. This nomadic lifestyle will become even more common as technology frees people from the constraints of time and location. The cool chip, characterized by high performance and low power consumption, will play a key role in inaugurating the Nomadic Age. Rather than describe its technical details, we take a broader, more historic view of the cool chip's impact. More than a necessary innovation, cool chips' increased portability and reduced power consumption will play a key role in building a better future society
