Last week I saw the programme ‘Invisible World’ by Richard Hammond (Hamster), one of the ‘Top Gear’ broadcaster. He wrote ‘Invisible World’ through nano-technology on a small portion of his own hair and there is a possibility that a whole library of books can be written on one of your hair. That opens up a whole new world of countless ways of changing the work we do now-a-days. Another problem that was raising lots of concerns for scientists on moon was ‘dust’ that sticks with their protection suits or goes inside. The scientists used thin foil of lotus leaf plant to which water and dust cannot stick. You place your arm covered with lotus leaf made suit and you won’t get wet. Then the scientists found out how a spider weaves its web by producing silk from its body.
I thought what if it is possible to combine all above three properties in the form a Liquid Color Display (LCD) sheet. We weave that sheet from spider web. Place the whole circuit in the threads of spider silk and then cover it with lotus material. That way we can fold the LCD screen and place it like a sheet where ever we want. There would be no need for extra protection as lotus leaf property will save it from water and dust. This LCD sheet will be unbreakable as well, because spider thread becomes strong like steel when many are combined together and there won’t be any chance of scratches on that LCD sheet over time due to lotus covering.
I am assuming here that if words can be written on human hair like Richard Hammond did in his ‘Invisible World’ series, then it is possible to place information on spider silk threads. This folding LCD sheet will definitely be very expensive but surely a new revolution in the television industry of-course.
What you guys think???
