A TV screen as thin and flexible as paper. A cook's pot that flashes a warning if it detects E. coli. Possible treatments for damaged spinal cords. It's not science fiction -- these are all possible applications of a material known as graphene.



Discovered by Scientists in Manchester too. :)

Interesting stuff. Sounds like there's loads of applications for it. Would be pretty cool having a phone as thin as paper.

Imagine having it as wallpaper. You could change it to a view of whatever you want.
With that camera of smeggy's you could take a panoramic pic of anywhere and have it in your living room or bedroom. :)
Don't think I'll ever be able to afford that even if I'm still alive by then.

Yes, never thought of that. Would be a great way of redecorating. Whenever you fancy a change just push a few buttons and download new wallpaper :thumb:

You might be able to afford it before you keel over Stan. These things start off at big money, but become a lot cheaper over time.

Yes maybe Res.
More I think the more amazing uses there are.
Like clothes, change the colour whenever you want.
Change the colour of your car.
Have it on your windows and record yourself walking about, watching tv or whatever. Make burglers think twice. :D

It is amazing stuff, really is. It will take a while to make it practicable for the various uses they've thought up so far. Could be revolutionary though.

I remember them demonstrating the first usable lasers on Tommorow's World in the early 60s, it was all very clever but there were very few uses for it for years. Earliest one I remember offhand is the CD player.

We're still waiting for the Star Wars type laser guns though :)

Bold...

The first uses of this material will almost certainly be military... Clothes and vehicles that change colour?... Hmmmm. Predator style stealth camouflage uniforms and paint will be among the first uses i guess.

I was bored and decided to update my signature but i couldnt think of anything to put, so i decided to just put Bollocks!

Look at how things ahve progressed in the last 40 years, and then extrapolate that rate of prgression over the next 40 years. Its possible I'll live for another 40 years and probably the biggest reason I want to live for as long as possible to see how technology progresses.

Graphene catsuits for women would be, cough, interesting :)

From the comments directly above, the porn industry will undoubtedly get there first.

Graphene though, you may be onto something. Not much chance of pushing a finger through, :finger: but it will smear a bit. :hyenas:
