+ - Threadlike Carbon Nanotube Fiber Combines Strength, Flexibility and Conductivity->

Submitted by Zothecula
Zothecula (1870348) writes "At about 100 times the strength of steel at one sixth the weight and with impressive electrical conductive properties, carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have promised much since their discovery in 1991. The problem has been translating their impressive nanoscale properties into real-world applications on the macro scale. Researchers have now unveiled a new CNT fiber that conducts heat and electricity like a metal wire, is very strong like carbon fiber, and is flexible like a textile thread."
