The European Union for the Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) triggered an investment of 1 billion euros towards the Graphene Flagship Consortium. The group consists of 74 partners from the EU, including Nokia. Graphene is interesting because it is transparent, conductive, and stretchable. It’s also the strongest material ever tested
Henry Tirri, EVP, CTO of Nokia, said they first started working with graphene in 2006. Last year at MWC, they had a demo of a graphene sensor that triggered a high speed camera. Take a look below.
Interesting form factors can come out of graphene. Imagine transparent, flexible, and stretchable devices. Need more info on graphene? This video explains it further.
