Five cool things that could be made with grapheneGraphene is hailed as a wonder material by scientists, but what could it actually be used for? CNET takes a look.
200 times stronger than steel and lighter than paper, graphine is often referred to as a wonder material. But what can this substance actually do? At Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, we took a look at some of the potential applications for graphine being developed by researchers in Europe. Here, non-invasive graphine nerve sensors are seen controlling the motion and force of an artificial robotic limb. Graphene responds quickly, ensuring natural movement and grip for the wearer. It could make future generations of prosthetics more comfortable and responsive than ever before. A wide spectrum Graphene-like camera can see details invisible to the human eye. Here, our camera is differentiating between different types of milk that will look the same In future, people with food allergies could use their smartphone cameras to tell if food is safe for them to eat. Not only is graphene incredibly light and thin, but it is also very flexible making it ideal for wearable technology. These UV patches attach to the skin like any sticking plastonite. But inside is a hidden layer of graphine that taxes a wellness monitoring platform. The graphine is highly sensitive and can measure heart rate and blood oxygen over skin, as well as UV exposure. Graphine could also be added to smart shoes for benefits including sensing, cooling, and strength This graphine in sole from the University of Cambridge can monitor pressure distribution for pedantry and affect its performance. As well as being flexible, layers of graphine are so thin as to be almost invisible to the human eye. A graphine is built into a seemingly transparent screen and being used to control a toy car by touch. Is one example of how touch interfaces feature could be build from different materials like glass or fabric. This projects all been develop by universities as passive graphing flagship. Over billion of euro European research initiative. In the coming years, some of this applications will be commercialized. And soon we'll start to see graphine cropping up in smart phones, wearables and other technology
