    I just read the pictures, I am too tired to read that much. I knew they molded it, but I didn't know how.

    We have cassettes, tables,and screens made outta carbon fiber in radiography/ therapy. Those things are expensive as sh*t. Thousands for a 14X17 cassette and who knows how much for the tables.
    Anywho, interesting find none the less. :)

    I actually sleep with a carbon fiber blanket at night. It's a $140 Matco tools welding blanket that can withstand up to 3000 degrees. It's very soft though, like a regular blanket
