In this week's Tech Briefs TV video, Rice University scientists demonstrated an ability to embed graphene into paper, cloth, and even your breakfast. Why etch patterns into toast? James Tour, a chemist at Rice University, envisions never-before-seen applications, like embedding electronics as a self-cooking heat circuit, or creating a kind of "RFID tag" that tells consumers the path of a potato before it reaches your table.
"Very often we don’t see the advantage of something early on, but when we make it available, people start seeing the real advantage," Tour said in the Tech Briefs TV video.
What do you think? Will edible electronics catch on?
