    Is There Anything It Can’t Do? Researchers Propose Artificial Muscles Made Of Graphene

    We've seen graphene do some amazing things, but every time we think we've seen the coolest potential application for the wonder-substance, it continues to impress. The latest impressive feat? Researchers at Duke University have taken advantage of one of the things that makes graphene difficult to work with -- the fact that it "crumples" easily -- and turned that quality into a desirable trait that they can control. By running the show as graphene crumples and flattens out, the team could one day use the substance to form artificial muscles that expand and contract on command.
