The carbon crystalline matrix has been the most frustrating thing to harness, when the breakthrough comes it will hit the electronic industry like carbon fibre hit mechanical design.
How to read the effects of that disruptive technology? Hard to guess which of the myriad scientists will pull it out of the bag; easier maybe to spot who stands to lose, I guess.
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
