Researchers in China have unveiled a new carbon-based paper they have created which is capable of being triggered using a laser. Enabling the graphing paper to actually start moving and walking along a surface in a very crude sort of way.
The graphing paper is heated by an infrared laser that causes certain sections of the device to expand and contract when required. Check out the video below to learn more.
No applications for the new technology have been unveiled as yet but the ability to trigger movements using an infrared laser is sure to open up a huge variety of different uses in the near future. For more information jump over to the Science Advances website via the link below.
