The Resources that Have Changed How we Live
The creation of unique and amazing products has been made possible by the improvement in technology. A buyer will only prefer a product if it is made of the best material in the market. One thing about these futuristic materials is that they make us see as if the future is already here. Each of the mentioned material below has impacted the human life in a good or bad way.
Any substance that is made from plant materials falls under the term bioplastics. Relevant examples of the chemical-based plants are the starch and the vegetable oils. The good thing about these materials is that they are environmental-friendly. All the products that are made from petroleum-based polymers are not friendly to the environment. The cost of bioplastics production is however very discouraging. If the cost of production lowers, it will result in the increased popularity of the material. These materials should not be disposed of in bins.
E-skin is a flexible plastic film that can be coated on any material. This product is because it is only made of a transistor and an organic LED. Its most appropriate application is touchscreen. Another application of E-skin is any bandages that are used to determine how fast the heart is beating.
This potential material is made of metal and surrounded by pores that are filled with gas. It is strong and also very light because most of it is space. One of its appropriate application is in plastic joints and bones.
Another amazing futuristic material is nanocellulose. It also appears on the list of the strongest materials on the planet. Nanocellulose can be used in the manufacture of electrical appliances because electricity can pass through it. Graphite and nanocellulose can be used together to make batteries and flexible telephones. With nanocellulose. Recycling is possible.
This material is scratch-resistant. It can be modeled into various desired shapes. Another benefit of this material is that it is strong and that is why it is preferred by the companies that manufacture smartphones.
Graphene is a strong, thin and stiff futuristic material. Because of its excellent properties, graphene is used to make batteries and computers that perform tasks very fast.
Willow glass is a thin material that is also very elastic. An amazing thing about this material is that it is as thin as a copy paper and very flexible thus used to make phone screens.
This chemical bond used to hold the carbon chains together is what makes this unique material stronger than diamond and steel. Most of the space elevators need to be strong and are therefore made of carbon nanotubes.
Its disordered atomic structure makes this material very strong. It is also environment-friendly.
It is transparent and strong at the same time.
