Attention all football dags!

Sarah: Getting sick of your clunky built-in radio headphones revealing your complete submission to football dag-hood? Nanotechnology could be your saviour. A wireless radio detector has been successfully constructed from carbon nanotubes, suggesting that our radios of the future might be a whole lot smaller. The newly developed carbon nanotube ‘demodulator’, developed by Peter Burke and Chris Rutherglen of the University of California, was successfully used to transmit classical music wirelessly from an iPod to a speaker several feet away. This marks the first time that a nano-sized detector has been demonstrated in an actual working radio system, and offers great hope for a wireless communication system constructed entirely at the nano-scale. The full report has been published by a journal of the American Chemical Society, Nano Letters.
