I've been intrigued by graphene's multiple possibilities for the future. It is a flexible, programmable material that harness nano-technology to create flexible touch screens, "wearables", efficient energy storage systems, and more. The following videos provide just two examples of graphene's potential.
The details? If you are curious, follow the links at the end of this post.
Here is a short clip of a demo of a graphene touch screen on a Samsung Galaxy:
