A description by Georgia Tech professor Dr. Zhong Lin Wang about the impact that materials science and engineering has on our quality of life, both now and in the future. In this piece Dr. Wang discusses the future uses of piezotronic transistors embedded in a flexible transparent disc. Or, as Dr. Wang might say to his students, circuitry integration of piezotronic transistors based on vertical zinc oxide nanowires as an active taxel-addressable pressure/force sensor matrix for tactile imaging. Or something like that.
