One atom thick graphene has such amazing capabilities that it is being applied to everything from fashion technology to sustainability improvements. A little black dress made of the material incorporates sensors and lights that change in relationship to the wearer’s breathing, and graphene coated solar panels allow energy to be generated even on overcast and rainy days. Using its optical transparency feature to generate power from incidental light, researchers from the University of Glasgow have created a synthetic skin that could be used in both robotics and prosthetics. Members of the University’s Bendable Electronics and Sensing Technologies (BEST) group integrated…
