Graphene is showing a ton of potential for use in new wearable technology. Because of its unique molecular structure, graphene is: lightweight, strong, conductive, flexible and diamagnetic. From Wikipedia:
Graphene is an allotrope (form) of carbon consisting of a single layer of carbon atoms arranged in an hexagonal lattice. It is the basic structural element of many other allotropes of carbon, such as graphite, diamond, charcoal, carbon nanotubes and fullerenes.
C|net shares this video from Mobile World Congress in Barcelona taking a look at 5 innovative ways graphene is being used. Watch the video to learn how graphene can be used for: prosthetics, wearable sensors, fabrics and screens.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
