Breakthrough Material Could Turn Your T-Shirt Into A Touchscreen Panel
Newly created substance will revolutionize wearable electronic devices.
A team of researchers from the University of Exeter have created a revolutionary material adapted from graphene. The innovation called ‘GraphExeter’ is only one-atom thick and is claiming to be “the most transparent, lightweight and flexible material ever for conducting electricity.” The material can be sandwiched between non-electrical objects and turn them into devices. What this essentially means is that a t-shirt can be embedded with a touchscreen MP3 player, or the sleeve of a jacket contains a digital watch. The possibilities are endless for wearable electronics.
