Silicon made possible the revolution in semiconductor miniaturization that began in the 1960s. So the fact that today size is considered a serious limitation of silicon is an indication of how far the technology has advanced since that time. As the silicon substrates used in electronics and solar cells reach their limits, how can manufacturers make components any smaller? Can graphene come to the rescue?

“Crowdfunding is reshaping society’s traditional business model.” So says Tom Vroemen, CEO of CrowdAboutNow,
He was talking at the recent Phare conference and I think he has a point. Crowd financing platforms have been around, in various forms and guises, since the 17th century. The earliest documented case is the Praenumeration subscription model which publishers in Germany used to incentivise book sales.

But Steve Austin didn't choose to have these cybernetic replacements installed. He was injured in a crash and was ‘rebuilt’ with cybernetic replacement parts.
In recent years there have been a lot of developments in artificial limbs and replacement organs like artificial hearts. But ...
