Carbon Nanotubes and Spongy Polymer Help Transistors Stretch 17

MTorrice writes "To make future displays that roll, bend, and stretch, electronics makers need the circuits that control the pixels to be elastic. In particular, they need flexible transistors. Now researchers have combined a carbon nanotube mesh with a spongy ionic polymer to build super-stretchy transistors. The scientists can pull the devices to lengths 57% greater than their resting length without disrupting performance."

    You can stop posting a /. story for every new application for Carbon Nanotubes we get it they can do everything. At this point I would be more surprised if it was discovered that there was something they couldn't do.

Bringing computers into the home won't change either one, but may revitalize the corner saloon.
