[#1] Invention: Manufacturing Graphene using Tea-Extract
What problem does this solve? Today, manufacturing Graphene takes a lot of time and can only produce/grow small amounts of the material. It takes a lot of energy, raw-material and time - to produce the small quantities of the product.
I’m an Android user and today I’m wishing I owned a iPhone or iPad after seeing this idea…
It’s called Whitelines.
To create a printable paper that uses “white-lines” instead of the usual “solid-black/blue lines” and to take it a step further to add some scan marks such that a iPhone can take a digital picture of your notes and make it available online. The possibilities are endless.
