Engineers build computer of one-atom-thick carbon tubes

American engineers said Wednesday they had built the first computer made entirely of microscopic carbon “nanotubes” — a big step in the quest for faster, ever-smaller electronic devices. While performing only basic functions at speeds likened to a 1950s computer, the tiny machine was hailed as a breakthrough in the…

Spider-Man would drool over this carbon nanotube + spider silk combo

Spidey Would Drool Over This Carbon Nanotube + Spider Silk Combo (via Clean Technica) We’ve been so busy following the latest graphene news that we almost forgot all about our two our other fave “miracle” materials of the new millenium, carbon nanotubes and spider silk, but it looks like Florida…
