Nokia Receives Grant to Develop the "World's Strongest Material" (Video)

It's called graphene. It's super-thin and believed to be 300 times stronger than steel. And now, thanks to a $1.35 billion grant over 10 years from the European Union, Nokia is set to develop what's being called the "world's strongest material." As part of a group called the Graphene Flagship Consortium, Nokia will now use the financial backing to "improve the world" using the "super-material."

It'll be interesting to see how Nokia will utilize graphene and if Henry Tirri, EVP, CTO of Nokia saying that "the greatest innovations have yet to be discovered” is any indication of what's to come, get excited.
