This looks like really exciting new technology that could really change not only smartphones but could have endless possibilities!
Weâve been hearing about the potential of grapheneÂ in the electronics industry for years. Just last month, Samsung announced that it had discovered a new production method that could bring graphene to commercial products even sooner. Taking advantage of the materialâs flexibility, Samsung believes that flexible displays will be much more than a gimmick in the coming years.
Sadly, we havenât yet had the chance to see that potential in action as manufacturers continue to research ways to implement the recently discovered material into phones, tablets and other devices. As grapheneÂ hasnât yet been used in commercial applications, most of us are entirely unaware of what the âmiracle materialâ actually consists of, and why so many companies are spending time and resources on the production of graphene.
The Loopâs Dave Mark has pointed us in the direction of a video from The One ShowonÂ the BBC, which explains grapheneÂ in terms that anyone should be able to comprehend. As the showâs host explains it, graphene is âstronger than diamond, more conductive than copper, more flexible than rubber and itâs so thin you can barely see it with the naked eye.â
If youâre at all interested in what could be one of the landmark discoveries of the 21st century, itâs worth your time to understand some of the basics of graphene.
