We Can Now Print Ultrafast Graphene Chips for Flexible Electronics

Futurists are always talking about how flexible electronics will change our lives in amazing ways, but we've yet to see anything mind-blowing come to market. A team of scientists from the University of Texas in Austin, however, think they've found the key to changing that: ultrafast graphene transistors printed on flexible plastic. Read More >>

65 Years Ago the Transistor Jump-Started the World Of Modern Technology

65 years ago, back on December 16th 1947, William Shockley, John Bardeen, and Walter Brattain operated the first ever working point-contact transistor, almost known as the iotatron. Now, so many years later, we rely on the decedents of that transistor as a part of practically all of the high tech electronic devices we use every day. Read More >>
