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 discoveredâ€ť is any indication of what's to come, get excited.
