12 Ways Graphene Will Transform Medical Devices


Within the last year, graphene has been a hot topic in tech news. If you were to believe the articles, it can increase computing power, improve battery storage, replace batteries with super capacitors, enable transparent and smart textiles, improve MEMS sensitivity and effectiveness, make entirely new types of sensors, improve cooling systems, create higher resolution displays, and actuate mechanisms.

And the really jaw dropping fact: All of those articles are from a single journal from just a four-month period earlier this year. Developments are happening fast in the graphene world, with research centers all over the globe investing in the material. As with all futuristic medical technology, it will take a while to jump from the lab to the practical, but if it keeps up with this breakneck pace, graphene could be a $100 Billion industry at the core of our electronic devices in just a few years.
