I keep hearing about graphene the 'wonder material' - and how it's strong, flexy, one atom thick and conducts electricity, promising roll-up digital screens and more. But there are no large-scale uses of it yet. Perhaps new research that shows it can be made in a kitchen blender will change that.
Still, nobody knows when or if graphene will actually be useful. I wonder why some technologies get jumped on by the media. Is graphene really going to change the world, or does it just make a good story for now?
