    Can I get a tl;dr? Didn't even feel like reading it to bold important stuff. :o

    I think it said some of this nanotech could be used for new building materials, though. Maybe this will give them some torque, too. :dunno:

    Cliffs: Sounds like they are using crystal-growing techniques to grow tough microscopic carbon fibers that are basically diamond hairs.

    Semiconducting Single Walled Carbon Nanotubes or SW-CNTs for short are more interesting. A lot more difficult to produce than MW-CNTs though, the yields are lower and they are expensive to grow to any kind of decent length... as time goes on manufacturing processes will get better though and SW-CNTs will become a commodity product.
