Cambridge Uni graphene spin-out Paragraf gets $3.9M

Paragraf, a Cambridge University graphene spin-out, has closed a £2.9M (~$3.9M) seed round. The funding is led by the university’s commercialization arm, Cambridge Enterprise, with Parkwalk Adv

Graphene-based edible electronics will let you make cereal circuits

Researchers at the have successfully etched edible circuits onto the surface of food, paving the way for RFID tagged edibles that can help us track food from farm to tummy. The project, which uses som

Erato’s lightweight Verse wireless earbuds deliver solid sound at a good price

Erato, one of the first companies to make and sell fully wireless earbuds, has a new product available called the Verse that’s more affordable than its flagship Apollo 7 buds, but with great sou

Graphene running shoes will hit the market next year

Running shoes and graphene were made for each other. One is always in search of the latest gimmick and the other has produced some of the most stunning in recent memory. The University of Manchester,

Graphene used to sieve salts from seawater

Researchers at the University of Manchester have come up with a method for controlling the permeation of graphene oxide membranes -- enabling the nanomaterial to act as a sieve to desalinate seawater.

Teslaphoresis-activated self-assembling carbon nanotubes look even cooler than they sound

Not all important scientific research is cool looking, or has a cool name. But now and then you get something with both. These self-assembling carbon nanotubes are created with a process called Teslap

Graphene Shows Promise For Brain Implants

Graphene, the super thin carbon material that's been exciting scientists in the decade+ since single-atom thick graphene crystallites were successfully extracted from the bulk material, continues to g

Graphene Turns Light Into Electricity For Faster Circuits

Welcome to another episode of "Cool Science Stuff That Probably Will Have Some Effect On Our Lives Later But We Probably Won't Realize It." In this week's installment we present graphene photosensors.

Europe Bets €1BN And 10 Years On “Wonder Material” Graphene As A Silicon Replacement

A graphene research initiative has been selected by the European Commission as one of two winners of its Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) research excellence award competition -- to develop the

Cambridge University To Open £25M Graphene R&D Centre With Backing from Nokia, Plastic Logic & Others

Material scientists and nanotechnologists get very excited about the potential of graphene -- a one-atom-thick sheet of bonded carbon atoms that's exceptionally strong and flexible -- but they are no
