isn't this the stuff they said could be like charged to full in like 30 seconds, and runs for triple what normal li-ion batteries do?

An actual product made of the stuff that actually delivers on some of the promises.

Tennis rackets/racquets?

Among it's many other amazing properties, yep.

Graphene is but one of several 2 dimensional (1 atom thick crystalline sheets) materials being developed with advanced properties. It's becoming a new branch of materials science, though we're still in its infancy. Once 2D materials really hit it'll be revolutionary, so giggle if you want. Much like 3D printing, which was a novelty 2 years ago but as "Additive Manufacturing" it's used to make structural aerospace parts and medical implants now, it won't be funny very long.

I'm fairly sure that graphemes racket as nothing but marketing speech, "regular" carbon racket, with maybe a symbolic graphemes layer on the inside of the handle that does nothing but sell it on the "ZOMG ADVANCED MATERIALS !!!!1111" hype.

Graphemes has some great potential in the future when it's actually production ready and out of research stage, heck it's barely into prototype stage yet.

As for 3D printing, it's been used for advanced prototyping and construction for well over 10 years. Home 3d printing however was a useless toy novelty 2 years ago that couldn't make high res quality products, and... It still is. In another year when home rising printers hit then maybe, to bad they're horribly toxic, and still really expensive :/

Cure cancer.

I wouldn't be so sure about that, they are working on it ;)

Some more information I've found about the graphene here: Graphene - just an atom thick and 200 times stronger than steel and a near perfect conductor and here: Jagged graphene edges can slice into cell membranes - it shows how widely used that material can be - so it's worth to keep an eye on it and we will see what more they will find out about it. If anyone have some more info about it, please post it here as well
