Graphene used to create a thermal invisibility cloak
We’re constantly looking for innovative ways to improve the Springwise experience, and so we’re now introducing BeeLine Reader, a new technology that helps you read more quickly and efficiently. To learn more about BeeLine Reader, an award-winning startup funded by Intel Capital, see BeeLineReader.com.
Springwise have followed a number of recent innovations that utilise graphene for various purposes. Such examples range from stronger, greener concrete to edible electronics. The world of thermal technology has also benefited from this material; a paint uses graphene for improved insulation and graphene-coated shoes keep feet cool. Scientists at Bilkent University and the Izmir Institute of Technology, in Turkey, have used graphene themselves as a way to disguise the temperature of objects captured by thermal imaging. The invention makes objects appear to be the same temperature as their surroundings. Furthermore, Coskun Kocabas and his team were inspired by the cuttlefish,…
