Well, you all know we’re all about mobile devices. But the Senior Staff wants us to branch out a little bit into more general “technology” (whatever that may mean), so here goes:
First you need to know what graphene is (okay, so Wikipedia isn’t generally acknowledged as a good research source, but we’re just looking for a quick primer). Read that? Great.
So far, graphene has been made by peeling layers of graphite with, basically, Scotch tape. Well, some folks at UCLA have discovered a better way, using a CD and a DVD writer. Seriously.
What does this have to do with mobility? BATTERIES. Graphene is a great super-capacitor. 30-second charging of your mobile phone? Yes! Compostable?? Yes, PLEASE!
Yeah, yeah: scientific discoveries can take years to go into production. But this is exciting stuff!
