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?
