What’s better than a carbon nanotube chip? A transparent and flexible carbon nanotube and IGZO chip!

USC's CNT/IGZO hybrid computer chip, flexible
Researchers at the University of Southern California (USC) have combined two of our favorite materials — carbon nanotubes and IGZO — to create a new hybrid computer chip design that is flexible, transparent, and more energy efficient than conventional silicon chips. Potential applications include flexible OLED displays, circuits, memory, and sensors, eventually leading towards flexible, wearable computers — which, as you may have noticed, appears to be the direction that the computing industry is moving towards.
