    Default Graphene


    Letís talk about the coolest substance ever: graphene. Itís one atom thick, (about one-millionth the thickness of a single strand of hair), itís 100 times stronger than steel, and it conducts electricity like nothing else. Itís a supermaterial that is quietly changing the course of technology.

    Hereís why you should get excited about it:


    It will turn computers into transformers
    It is now being suggested that graphene can be changed into different configurations on the fly by simply manipulating it with lasers. That means that it could take on the form of different computers in just seconds, freeing us from hard-printed, static motherboards. Right now, you carry multiple computers configured for different purposes, partially because their motherboards, printed on hard silicon, canít do anything other than that for which they were designed. Your smartphone handles a selection of communication and entertainment functions. Your camera is filled with camera-friendly chips. Your game console is heavy on graphics and presentation hardware. Your computer is memory-heavy, able to crunch file structures and complex mathematics.

    Graphene, with its perceived infinite laser-configurability as a motherboard, could morph into virtually any kind of computer. Different sheets could handle different functions at the same time in the space of a tiny sheet of paper. Electronics could be improved and updated ó even changed completely ó remotely. Your smartphone operating system updates and game console software updates are one thing, but imagine if you could download a totally new smartphone to your graphene-based device rather than waiting for Apple to announce it every fall.

    Your batteries will charge in seconds
    Researchers at UCLA turned graphene into a battery that charges in seconds and leaves no negative environmental waste behind. Because of grapheneís hyper-conductivity and sensitivity to light, it can be used to store energy ó in short, it can become a battery. And because of its minuscule size and flexibility, it charges in seconds.

    Your Internet connection will be 1 million times faster
    Researchers at Georgia Tech created an antenna that can transfer an entire terabit of data in one second. Thatís 1,000 gigabits (a single gigabit is a billion bits). For comparisonís sake, the average U.S. broadband Internet speed is 10 megabits per second. This wireless graphene test was approximately a million times faster than that.

    Youíll know your blood composition in real time
    Graphene is being studied for uses in medicine, as it could act as a great bioelectric sensor to monitor things like glucose levels, cholesterol, and DNA sequencing. If you think todayís wearables are impressive in the way they monitor heart rate and distance traveled, just imagine what graphene will be able to monitor!

    Apache is from a while ago as well.

    Though that is a cool article. Thank you for sharing.

    I had heard about graphene several years ago in my computer magazines. Looks awesome.

    Meh, never make it to market. Too much money at stake to replace so much hardware at one time. My money says it will never see any consumer applications put to use.
    Not everything that counts on the battlefield is countable.

    They might be hard to replace everyone at once. If used in a Cell phone the application of it can go faster. Most people in the USA replace a cell phone in 1-2 years. Also our plans for phones make it easier and cheaper to change rapidly.

    The brokest people are the ones that get their phones replaced every so often, welcome to 'Merica. I saw a guy with a Note 3 waiting for the bus.

    Of course this depends on your type of phone. You are paying in the plan for new phone credit. The longer you wait the less you get back. Consumer Reports had an interesting article on this.
