nanotube disco

My latest news story about carbon nanotube displays has just gone online:

Quick-switching carbon nanotube displays

When I researched this, I was intrigued to find out that the same lab had also developed powerful loudspeakers based on nanotubes. Surely, the fully nanotubed disco can't be far off.

The secret is all in the alignment of the tubes. Originally the authors had looked into aligning tubes as a way of getting long and strong threads to bypass the problem of creating tubes with macroscopic length, for applications where the strength of the material is crucial.
