New York-based design studio Decker Yeadon is exploring an innovative way to use carbon nanotubes for creating building materials that will require no human intervention or motors to move. The studio created a liquid solution called NanoINK, made from carbon nanotubes and deionized water, that imparts electrical qualities of nanotubes onto substrates such as paper which are coated with this ink. This research opens up several possibilities for applications, where regular objects, coated with this printable ink, can be used to conduct electricity.
