Daily Tech has an interesting article about HP’s invention of the “memristor”, a electronics component that was dreamed up back in 1971 by Leon Chua from University of California at Berkeley.

A memristor would need no boot up as its data would be exactly how it was previously left. Data could theoretically be read and wrote directly to and from memristors, eliminating the need for hard drives, except possibly for backup storage.
