The problem with what he said was that was back in 2013! Which means they've known how to make it from before that, say the ten year rule, which means the research was done before that.


You need to go back much further.

Sir Benjamin Collins Brodie began the creation of graphene in 1859.

graphene-flagship.eu...



Makes you wonder doesn't it....
The sceptic in me says the inability to optically resolve Graphite at the required scale prevented any useful "graphene" application but hey- the electron scanning microscope has been around since the 40's..

Maybe it was just overlooked but its a stretch.

^5 penroc!!!

I've been waiting for someone else to notice the various graphene doping strategies that instzntly turn very standard visible spectrum imaging sensors into sensors capable of hyperspectral imaging at negligible costs....

Penroc, now think about this one.... Dope a plenoptic imaging sensor ...

Or better yet dope several array them and etc and suddenly get 1000+ meter human sig id ranges from $350 optics not $8000 thermals....


Also your SWAP-C just went through floorboards...


Good times

There's related technologies way further along that are super exciting man.... 2 of them iirc are within 12-18 months of initial commercialization...


There's so much coolness ongoing right now it's overwhelming

And still, with all that night hunting tech, we can't defeat a bunch of Hillbilly Mujahideen.

Theres more to war than seeing in the dark.

i was hesitant to post it because it seems sci fi.


i almost wonder if this tech is in our spy satellites
