Material Bends, Stretches and Conducts Electricity?

In the latest twist on electronics, Japanese scientists said on Thursday they have developed a rubbery material that conducts electricity, a finding that could be used to make devices that bend and stretch. The material, described by Tsuyoshi Sekitani of the University of Tokyo in the journal Science, could be used on curved surfaces or even in moving parts. Sekitani’s team developed their material using carbon nanotubes, a long stretch of carbon molecules that can conduct electricity
