Why graphene hasn’t taken over the world...yet

223327 ratings | 9649546 views
Graphene is a form of carbon that could bring us bulletproof armor and space elevators, improve medicine, and make the internet run faster — some day. For the past 15 years, consumers have been hearing about this wonder material and all the ways it could change everything. Is it really almost here, or is it another promise that is perpetually just one more breakthrough away?

Which graphene-based technology are you most excited for?
когда Россия уже начнет получать на собственных изобретениях, а то наши ученые все разрабатывают, а пользуются нашими разработками и средства на их зарабатывают другие. А российские будто в дерьме жили этак и живут.

I want Graphene nanofiber power armor while I call my mom on my Graphene nanomachines while a Graphene battery powers my house for 200 years.

Please investigate the "Starlite" hype. Because a similar material can be made and tested in any kitchen, it has gained a following. The secretive and conspiratorial story surrounding Starlite and the inventor who took the formula to his grave make it very interesting. BBC News stories and YouTube activities create a need for a substantive update. You should take it on. 🙂

Science has become just another bullshit game, they now routinely make outlandish promises which never materialise. We never see the benefits of any of this technology, they just pretend it will benefit many to get funding, but now science is just like politics, they just keep making empty promises but never deliver anything of any value. If you don't believe it, just keep listening to the tales of wonderful new discoveries and inventions when they are announced and then keep watching as they are discretely played down and eventually never mentioned again.

I just recently saw a TED talk about a company in India attempting to filter carbon pollution from the air in order to produce inks. Maybe one could do likewise with graphene.

I already have a stabilisation system in my bow that is made of graphene. It's really nice because it absorbs a lot of the shock after a shot

The UK company Inov8 has released a trail shoe with a graphene-based outsole compound developed in partnership with Manchester University where graphene was discovered. They claim that it comines grip and durability (normally mutually exclusive properties) at a new level. Reviews from the first batch tend to confirm this. Hardly life-changing, but real products are beginning to filter through.

Colleges and universities would do well to found Graphene inventor clubs that are open to the public . Many people who are not well versed in math have an analog way of thinking that can; with a little background info, help be a catalyst for the creative uses of graphene.
