So how has graphene changed our lives after >60 years of research? It's taken a decade to get to the stage of making a sliver of fullerene big enough to see with the naked eye. Don't hold your breath.

Nothing yet, but hey, why be defeatist. I remember being one of the first with a mobile phone, one that could fit in yer pocket that is, the Sony CH333 "Mars Bar" and it cost £365 with a tariff that was so extortionate that ya didn't dare call anyone.....now everyone has a mobile phone, rich or poor.

I'm not holding my breath on anything, but personal comms when I was a boy was the stuff of Star Trek, now reality leaves the personal comms of Star Trek for dead....am only saying.
