Using technology called carbon nanotubes, Big Blue takes a significant step on a years-long path to secure the computing industry's future as today's chipmaking technologies run out of steam.
At around $26 online, JVC's HA-S400 Nanotubes are among the better on-ear headphones for the money.
At around $26 online, JVC's HA-S400 earphones with Carbon Nanotubes are among the better on-ear models for the money.
Intel CEO Brian Krzanich, in a wide-ranging Reddit AMA, addresses Moore's Law, tablets, overclocking, and carbon nanotubes, among other topics.
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.
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.
