Watches made of super paper?

Now imagine buying a watch that is made of a material that is 10 times lighter and 500 times stronger than steel and it’s last name is paper. A little hard to swallow?

Then meet ‘Buckypaper’, a material made from tube-shaped carbon molecules 50,000 times thinner than a human hair. Currently it can only be made at only a fraction of its potential strength, in small quantities and at a high price. Currently, researchers are predicting that it revolutionize light, energy efficient aircraft and automobiles, but I can easily imagine a high-end luxury brand jumping on the bandwagon.

Who wouldn’t want to also add first wristwatch made of nanotech material to their resume?

  1. I almost never comment, but i did a few searching and wound up here Wristfashion | Watch Blog » Watches made of super paper?. And I actually do have 2 questions for you if you tend not to mind. Is it only me or does it look like a few of the responses appear as if they are written by brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are posting on additional social sites, I’d like to keep up with everything new you have to post. Would you make a list of every one of your shared sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
