Graphene and solar energy
This material can transform a photon into multiple electrons capable of carrying electricity. Now also, on rainy days.
Graphene could be able to turn the clothes we wear into real wearables connected.
The properties of graphene have made the textile world turn an eye on this material to design new kinds of fabric. Its durability and lightness could allow tailoring of bulletproof clothing, essential for police officers and the army.
In addition, its conductivity has made a group of developers integrate flexible and transparent graphene electrodes inside textile fibres in order to turn garments into truly portable or wearable, lightweight, durable and easy-to-carry devices.
