Google X, the company's secret laboratory has worked up some whoppers in its time, but this here's a humdinger.
A new study has taken a close look at what the construction of a space elevator might take, and the news is (mostly) good.
Intel teams up with UC Berkley to add carbon nanotubes to heat sinks to crank up CPU speeds.
No word yet whether robots will also adopt fur coats and a penchant for mouse hunting.
Researchers at the University of California Berkeley develop material with carbon nanotubes that automatically respond to light.
Nothing says confidence like a suit that can defend you from even the stabbiest of coworkers.
Engineers at Stanford University successfully build the first computer using carbon nanotube technology.
Researchers have created a sensor chip using nanotechnology to possibly detect diseases by examining a drop of blood.
Part of the reason that solar cells aren't on top of every roof everywhere harvesting energy is that they're expensive, and part of the reason that solar cells are expensive is because they're made with exotic elements like indium. How about, let's instead make them with one of the top five most common elements in the entire Universe: say hello to the all-carbon solar cell.
Not even Star Trek imagined a future where electronics would be both flexible and transparent. And let's be honest: it's hard to imagine such gadgets even today, since seeing one or the other is still a rare enough thing. If anything is going to make it happen, though, it's carbon nanotubes, especially now that they've been made into transparent films.
