    until the government can figure out a way to make billions on this, it will be forever until we see this technology..even though it's probably and secretly already avaiable

    Flexible graphene transistor sets new records - physicsworld.com

    Also it is being pioneered into semiconductors. We are moving to smaller and smaller processes (nodes) and have almost reached our limit with our current production methods. Meaning, cant get any smaller without introducing negative byproducts such as excess heat, leakages and so forth.

    Anyway, I doubt the government has anything to do with it. It just takes time and billions to research this kind of stuff. Once it is mature, private companies will surely try monopolize.

    "In 2008, graphene produced by exfoliation was one of the most expensive materials on Earth, with a sample that can be placed at the cross section of a human hair costing more than $1,000 as of April 2008 (about $100,000,000/cm2).[14] Since then, exfoliation procedures have been scaled up, and now companies sell graphene in large quantities.[21][22] On the other hand, the price of epitaxial graphene on SiC is dominated by the substrate price, which is approximately $100/cm2 as of 2009. Even cheaper graphene has been produced by transfer from nickel by Korean researchers,[23] with wafer sizes up to 30 inches (760 mm) reported.[24]"

    That was a great video. You could really hear the passion in their voices. I love their complete hack way of making it too.

    This stuff is truly awesome. While you're all at it - Look at how easy it is to make carbon nanotubes (Buckminster forms too)

    Unless they already have them in a covert form of a everyday lithium battery.
