Buckypaper is a material that is 10 times lighter than steel and yet 250 times stronger. The downside is, it's a highly conducive material for both heat and electricity. Constructed from carbon nanotubes measuring about 1/50,000th the diameter of a hair, Buckypaper could change the way the world works when real-world applications for it are developed. We are looking at an energy-efficient, lighter material that would allow a more uniform level of brightness than current CRT and LCD technology.

More nanotube goodness. What can I say, I love them little buggers. Way more useful than a diet crouton.
