Recombu, a technology review website, caused shock waves this Easter when they posted a video of Nokia Seidhr, a wearable graphene screen that hangs from the brim of a hat and projects a moving image in front of the wearer’s eyes. Even though the authors of the video explicitly wrote that the announcement is an April Fool’s joke, the story has made Google news and is bound to go viral in the graphene community.
To make more clear what the “product” actually is, here is the video recorded by recombu and posted on YouTube (apologies for the explicit image on the video preview):
I wonder how long we will have to wait to see a real product like this on the market, although I think it’s more likely to come from Samsung than from Nokia. Nokia has been focusing on using graphene as a sensitive photodetector, whereas Samsung is really the company pushing for graphene screens.
