Using an exotic form of carbon called graphene, researchers print antennas on paper and other materials with a process that could bring network links to many cheap devices.
Intel CEO Brian Krzanich, in a wide-ranging Reddit AMA, addresses Moore's Law, tablets, overclocking, and carbon nanotubes, among other topics.
A team of Italian scientists turns ordinary spiders into super-spiders that can produce a web with fibers stronger than Kevlar. Hopefully the finding will also lead to a better Spider-Man movie.
Decades of progress creating conventional computer chips will stall in the coming years, forcing some far-out ideas on semiconductor makers. Carbon nanotubes or quantum computing, anyone?
Stanford researchers have created a basic system that shuns silicon in favor of imperfect lines of carbon atoms that could one day deliver even more performance and efficiency than current technology.
Using a titanium dioxide gel, researchers make a battery that could one day allow electric cars to fuel up as fast as their gas-guzzling cousins.
Scientists produce ultra-thin threads of carbon atoms they say should be stronger and stiffer than any existing man-made material. Space elevators, here we come.
Japan's giant construction company, Obayashi Corporation, has announced that it plans to build an elevator into space by the year 2050.
