Researchers make 'electric cloth'

A fabric which is a good conductor of electricity but so thin it is invisible to the naked eye, has been made by scientists in Devon.

Researchers at the University of Exeter used a layer of carbon atoms to make the GraphExeter.

It is hoped GraphExeter will be used for future touch-screen technology as well as for mirrors and fabrics if scientists manage to create a spray-on version.
