watching a video on “airless bike tires” made with carbon nanotubes https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ijz3TnmxZ1o
we were at Swissnex yesterday talking about using structured carbon for luxury products (watches, diamonds)

@titojankowski What I've been showing in BASF and Maker Faire, is this https://drive.google.com/drive/u/0/folders/0B7lPhq4Q0gzLQkFaenF4SkZ4VHM

@titojankowski
thanks! checking out crazybaby headphones now
Shannon A. Fiume
@safiume
It's a basic on the three main types of nanocarbons: graphene, CNTs, and fullerenes, with basic uses and some sample products. I own a pair of crazybaby air CNT based headphones. Sadly, The sound quality feels poor.
I can bring them by sometime.
Tito Jankowski
@titojankowski
did you buy them becuase of the CNT content?
Shannon A. Fiume
@safiume
:-( I wish they were better. I bought them on a early kickckstater. yes. because I wanted to know! Are CNTs better?
Tito Jankowski
@titojankowski
that’s what i want to know
i saw on wikipedia a picture of a bucky-paper paper crane
Shannon A. Fiume
@safiume
Not for a sound driver and what ever else they have attached to them.
Tito Jankowski
@titojankowski
i want that — drive a bus over it or something
Shannon A. Fiume
@safiume
which? the paper? or headphones?
Tito Jankowski
@titojankowski
the paper
i don’t think it’s real, think it’s just regular paper
Shannon A. Fiume
@safiume
no, bucky paper is real. I know a gal used them in a research project for a super cap.
Tito Jankowski
@titojankowski
o kool
would the battery you’re working on be called a carbon battery? nanocarbon battery?
(also, i don’t see much on autofracture about your battery, is it super extra top secret)
Shannon A. Fiume
@safiume
unsure on the branding.
Super top secret!
Tito Jankowski
@titojankowski
ah i see - perhaps my question is more “is there a class of batteries using this sort of method or is it unique to your work"
Shannon A. Fiume
@safiume
It's very early design stage. Pre product.
The extent to which I want to take it should be novel. There should be people working on replacing existing carbon with nanocarbons:CNTs/graphene, etc..
Fullerenes are pretty specialized since they collapse when fictionalized within materials. Most of the fullerene uses are with bio, and in some aqueous suspension preventing collapse.
Tito Jankowski
@titojankowski
are there any product companies doing legit stuff with nanocarbon? I found a few bike companies so far
Shannon A. Fiume
@safiume
How do you define structured carbon? where does that break from the big three: graphene/CNTs/fullerenes?
Tito Jankowski
@titojankowski
i was going to ask YOU!!! zzz

*nanocarbon
Shannon A. Fiume
@safiume
doh! I was mostly thinking of the big three: graphene/CNTs/fullerenes. The others aren't (a, b. and c, ) are carbon in 3 dimensions, and not on the 2-dimensional material (or form) based of graphene.
I have to look up structured carbon.
Tito Jankowski
@titojankowski
it may be a made up term
Shannon A. Fiume
@safiume
may be a marketing/branding term.
Tito Jankowski
@titojankowski
…i may have already tattooed it on my body

@safiume
ahah! all the rage with kids these days. too cool!
Tito Jankowski
@titojankowski
sounds like Head also makes skis with CNTs
Shannon A. Fiume
@safiume
There are some tennis racket manufactures that were using nanocarbons.
Tito Jankowski
@titojankowski
thanks!

@safiume
Structured carbon: found in research/academic papers of carbon, either refined carbon black or true graphene/cnts, pressed or formed with a binder to make a 3d structure like a foam.
So something stronger than graphite due to the binder. (less possibility of van der waals sheering, like in graphite.)
Tito Jankowski
@titojankowski
potentially “nano structured carbon"

@safiume
bicycle hoops are crazy! wholly crap, over a grand? I was thinking pro cycling racers and mtb would be interested.
