the superstar revolutionizes the performance of wheelchairs with a frame that is 30% lighter and 20% stronger compared to classic carbon models. The post küschall employs formula 1 to perfect ‘world’s lightest wheelchair’ made from graphene appeared first on designboom | architecture & design magazine.
Graphene is famous as a two-dimensional material, but to really make the most of the stuff we need to coax it back into 3D forms. Now researchers from Virginia Tech have developed a new way to 3D print graphene aerogels with a far higher resolution than previously possible...

Lithium-ion batteries are effective, but they can be a bit on the expensive side. Striking a balance between common materials and efficiency is important, and regular old salt looks like it could fit the bill – after a few kinks are ironed out. Now, researchers at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) have developed a way to make "disordered" graphene that can help imp
High-tech outdoor clothing company Vollebak likes going mad with gadgetry and advanced materials, and its latest jacket takes highly desirable geek unobtanium to dangerous levels. It's called the Graphene Jacket, and it's a jacket … with graphene... Continue Reading Graphene Jacket drapes you in everyone's favourite wonder material Category: Wearables Tags: Graphene
Graphene, the "wonder material" composed of a one-atom-thick sheet of linked carbon atoms, is the world's strongest manmade material. Now, scientists have used it to create a new type of concrete that is much stronger, water-resistant and eco-friendly than what we're used to... Continue Reading Graphene used to make stronger, greener concrete Category: Materials Tags: Concrete
Among the almost limitless use cases for commercial-scale graphene is filtration. MIT engineers say they've now developed a scalable production process for precisely tailored graphene filtration membranes, which could see action in desalination, biological separation and other applications...

Whenever a medical implant is introduced to the human body, there's a chance that its surface will be colonized by bacteria. In some cases, such infections require the implant to be removed. It's recently been discovered, however, that coating implants with vertical graphene flakes could help keep that from happening... Continue Reading Bacteria-killing graphene flakes may prevent implant
With graphene promising to revolutionize so many industries, we'll probably be churning out a lot of the stuff in the coming years. So, with current mass production techniques requiring the use of large amounts of organic solvents that aren't exactly great for the environment, the announcement of a new, more environmentally friendly and cost effective technique for the large-scale production
Graphene, the "wonder material" composed of one-atom-thick sheets of linked carbon atoms, now has yet another potential application. Led by Prof. Jiaxing Huang at Illinois' Northwestern University, scientists have used it to create a hair dye that's far less harmful than regular dyes...Continue Reading The latest use for graphene – non-toxic hair dyeCategory: ScienceTags: Graphene
Among graphene's long list of superpowers, filtering water may be one of the most directly beneficial. Now a team of Australian scientists has demonstrated how effective a specially-designed form of graphene can be at purifying water with a pretty challenging test: the filter made water from Sydney Harbour safe to drink in one step...Continue Reading Graphene filter makes even Sydney Harbour
