Richard Platt's curator insight, December 2, 2014 10:50 PM

Currently, energy storage is all about trade-offs. You can have lots of power (watts), or lots of energy (watt-hours), but you can’t generally have both. Supercapacitors can release a massive amount of power, but only for a few seconds; fuel cells can store a vast amount of energy, but are limited in their peak power output. This a problem because most modern applications of bleeding-edge tech — smartphones, wearable computers, electric vehicles — require large amounts of power and energy. Lithium-ion batteries are currently the best solution for high-power-and-energy applications, but even the best li-ion battery designs demand that industrial designers and electronic engineers make serious trade-offs when creating a new device.

So what's the deal with graphene and why does everyone think it's the next big thing? Well, as SciShow says, it conducts electricity better than silver, it conducts heat better than diamonds and even though it's only one atom thick, it's even stronger than steel. So why isn't it more popular and everywhere?

Capacitive deionisation (CDI) is a promising alternative technology in desalination which is particularly suitable for small-scale inland brackish water desalination due to its lower energy demand and low maintenance requirements. This article looks at the desalination performance of various carbon electrodes and compares Graphene Nano Flakes (GNFs) with Activated Carbon (ACs) electrodes.

Bonnie Burns's curator insight, December 2, 2014 4:02 PM

Being popular on social media takes a lot of work (or if you're Kim Kardashian, a lot of ass), but it doesn't usually pay off quite like this: A luxury hotel in Sweden will now comp your stay if you've got a big following on Facebook or Instagram.

Laura O'Brien's curator insight, December 2, 2014 7:24 PM

What an awesome idea. I think this is exactly what we'll be seeing more of, in years to come. Not just for hotels, but all businesses to accept social currency as a means to pay for the usage of a company's goods/services. If consumers spend more time promoting businesses, it will help those companies decrease their own incurred promotion costs. It's a win-win strategy for company objectives and customer satisfaction. 

Jeanine Askew's curator insight, December 11, 2014 12:14 AM

Key Takeaway: Having your business mentioned on Social Media matters.

 

Contrary to what Laura explained in class, you have to post quite a bit to receive a seven night stay at Nordic Light Hotel. In addition to set amount of post you must also have 2,000 personal Facebook friends, 100,000 Facebook fans or 100,000 followers on Instagram. Clearly, this is only a great deal for famous people.


Even though famous people, are the only ones benefiting from this promotion this is very innovative idea. This truly exemplifies the power of social media.I agree with the Hotel if a person  with 100,000 Facebook fans writes  about their wonderful experience in the hotel, it's sure to get some traction.  However, Nordic Light Hotel must make sure the post sound organic and not forced if they want to increase the number of occupants in their hotel. Most people are no longer fooled by brands who advertising through celebrities.

With both graphene and 3D printing both being hot topics among investors at the present, speculations were made as to the viability of this venture to produce “3D Printed Graphene Nanocomposites”.
