Meet Graphene, one of the hottest new icons of the future. At a mere one carbon atom thick, this recently discovered material (though ubiquitous in almost everything around us) promises a galaxy of applications that we haven't even conceived of yet. It's foldy, bendy, gets tucked into your pocket then stretched onto your wrist like a watch. Next thing you know, it's sitting on your car dashboard and telling you what the temperature outside is. Watch a movie on a nice flat screen in the park with your friend. And when you wind down to bed, prop it up in its upteenth shape and set your alarm for tomorrow morning. All this and more will eliminate the need for the stream of products that litter our homes - clutter out of the house, and out of landfills.
Check out the stuff that sci-fi movies are made out of.
Warning: The video does have a slight nauseating quality to it.
