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.
Carbon nanotubes have otherworldly qualities, and now Honda says its figured out a way to make the manufacture of such miraculous materials practical. Get this: Honda says its carbon nanotubes are 100,000 times thinner than human hair Stronger than steel...
The hydrogen breakthroughs just keep on coming. Here's another one, where Greek scientists have figured out how to store more hydrogen-per-liter than ever by using the newfangled carbon nanotubes you see in the illustration above. This is good news,...
