As a semiconductor, graphene allows super efficient transistors. These in turn can be bundled into low-power, fast computer chips. Or, combined with graphene's impressive strength, semi-conducting materials can be fashioned into thin, durable, efficient touchscreen displays for mobile phones. Graphene is still an experimental material, but it is causing a real stir, winning the Nobel Prize in physics for its discoverers in 2010. Expect it in a gadget near you within five years.
