Last year, researchers at UCLA made a rather fantastic, if serendipitous, discovery. A team of scientists led by chemist Richard Kaner had just finished devising an efficient method for producing high-quality sheets of the Nobel-prize winning supermaterial known as graphene ? with a consumer-grade DVD drive. That was groundbreaking in and of itself, but the real surprise came when Maher El-Kady, a researcher in Kaner's lab, wired a small square of their high quality carbon sheets up to a lightbulb. Then something incredible happened.......

Sounds like someone is catching up to Tesla's research, of 100 years ago.

He was able to light a room without bulbs at all. ;)

Memristors would be cool too. Remember when those happened? Oh wait, they didn't :laugh: (Yes, I know ReRAM is due in 2015, supposedly.)

It'll take another five years or longer before any part of it shows up in CE, I'm guessing.
