The Resources that Have Changed How we Live
The modern technology is better than the ancient one, and this improvement has made it possible for producers to come up with excellent items. A buyer will only prefer a product if it is made of the best material in the market. One thing about these futuristic materials is that they make us see as if the future is already here. Each of the mentioned material below has impacted the human life in a good or bad way.
Bioplastics is a term used to refer to substances derived from various plant-based materials. Relevant examples of the chemical-based plants are the starch and the vegetable oils. Bioplastics are biodegradable and thus do not affect the environment negatively. They are better than the plastics made from petroleum-based polymers and are not biodegradable. The cost of bioplastics production is however very discouraging. The cost has caused many people not to know about this futuristic material. They are also not reusable and should be disposed of properly.
This flexible material can be used as a coating on any product. On this film, you will find a transistor and an organic LED. This film has various applications such as surfaces that you would want to act as a touchscreen. Measuring of blood pressure and heart rate is made easier by applying E-skin on he bandages.
Metal foam is a metal structure that is filled with gas-filled pores. The space highly contributes to the light weight of this material. Doctors use metal foam when they are constructing artificial bones.
Another amazing futuristic material is nanocellulose. This material is one of the strongest. This light chemical also conducts electricity. It can be mixed with graphite to manufacture batteries, flexible telephones and some vehicles. Another amazing thing about this product is that it can be recycled.
This material is scratch-resistant. The user can transform it into various shapes. Smartphone manufacturing industries use this material because of how strong it is.
Grapheme is a solid and thin material. Its major uses include building superior batteries and fast computers.
Willow glass is a thin material that is also very elastic. An amazing thing about this material is that it is as thin as a copy paper and very flexible thus used to make phone screens.
This chemical bond used to hold the carbon chains together is what makes this unique material stronger than diamond and steel. This is the main material used to make space elevators.
Its disordered atomic structure makes this material very strong. It is also environment-friendly.
The material has to be polished because the end product of the process is not optically clear.
