Graphene Revolution: Harvest energy from "Air" !!!

With world becoming bigger and better everyday, advancing technologies, daily new discoveries in the field of science has given us many stunned movements in our lives, from bicycles to 3-D printers science and technology advance and help human making the the world a better and a magical place to live with.

With increasing the technology and advancement in science scientist and engineers are finding the solution to world "energy crisis". This decade many alternatives have been invented, But today I found something magical on the net: " Energy harvesting from air" this thing certainly gained my attention and I thought to share with my viewers.

I have mentioned Graphene in the title of blog. So, what actually is graphene? 
Graphene is a material which is 2 dimensional and just one atom thick, being 200 times more stronger than steel and conductivity much better than the copper. Graphene has same material of which is our household pencil. It was isolated in 2004 at the Manchester University headed by Andrew Geim and Kostya Novoselov. Both of these got Nobel Prize in Physics in 2010 for the discovery of the same.

This material has potential to revolutionize the way we think about the science, technology and gadgets. This material being transparent flexible and a very good conductor of electricity can change all electrical and electronic things around us, from electrical connection to smartphones and wearable technology.
