Quantum Apostrophe: Change the world! Oh my! I can't stand it anymore! First it was nanotechnology that was supposed to change everything! Then it was 3D printing! Then it was private space! Now it's bubble wrap! It's soooo EXCITING!!!!!

PS: What "new" materials are there here? What previously impossible combination of properties is on display here?


It's never with a sense of surprise, always with a sense of disappointment that we find you in these threads. It must be awful being you. Everything is just so... tiresome.

Are you asking in a philosophical sense, implying through the word "impossible" that creating these materials somehow required violating the fundamental laws of the universe?

Or are you asking in a more practical sense, as in what properties these materials exhibit that no other previously used materials have?

Earlier than that. If oxides count, the synthetic sapphire on the front of my wristwatch is also transparent aluminum.
