The new material brought their inventors the Nobel prize in physics and has been stirring the imagination of scientists ever since. But putting wondrous properties of graphene into good use proved to be a challenging task.

Instead of ending as a part of futuristic electronics, it has now found its way into fashion. This extremely strong material with the thickness of a single atom has recently been interwoven with nylon and made into a dress. As expected from the cutting edge material, it was not just an average gown, but could change colour according to the wearer’s breathing.

What a step from an ordinary piece of graphite we are using to doodle with.
