Graphene doesn’t need any introduction: it’s the super material to beat ’em all. But this beautiful video demonstrates how it could transform the future of the gadgets you use every day.
There’s been an idea floating around for a couple of years which suggests that graphene could be used to construct the world’s best supercapacitor: an electronic component that can hold as much charge as a battery, but juice up as quickly as a capacitor (that’s real, real fast, by the way). This video — nominated as a finalist in the GE Focus Forward Filmmaker Competition — dives into the research behind that simple idea. Enjoy. [YouTube]
