Tech2
The Moto X had its much anticipated annoucement a while back. But there seems to be a few black clouds in Motorola's skyline, apart from the price tag, that is. The company has reportedly had to pull one of the features from its much-talked-about customisation offering. And that may be a slight problem, because the biggest point in the smartphone's favour is the level you can customise it.

Nanotechnology research produces foldable graphene electronics on paper
Nano Werk
In contrast to flexible electronics, which rely on bendable substrates, truly foldable electronics require a foldable substrate with a very stable conductor that can withstand folding, i.e. an edge in the substrate at the point of the fold, which develops creases, and the deformation remains even after unfolding. That means that, in addition to a foldable substrate like paper, the conductor that is deposited on this substrate also needs to be foldable.
