Ever since carbon nanotubes were first reported in Nature in 1991 by Sumio Iijima, there has been an awful lot of speculation about what they are (or will be) good for. Proposed applications range from molecular electronics, biomedical uses such as drug delivery, through to the lofty goal of a space elevator!
Well, move over CRT TV, step aside LCD TV, here comes CNT TV… an American and a Taiwanese company have joined forces and announced a venture to develop and manufacture carbon nanotube-based TVs.
Money for nothing?
