Graphene is what it's all about now. Welcome to the future. I'm not smart enough to understand what it is or how it can be used, but the New York Times has a great article on it.

"Carmakers are exploring building electronic cars with bodies made of graphene that are not only protective, but act as solar panels that charge the car's battery. Airline makers also hope to build planes out of graphene."
