Public LittleBigPlanet Preview Kicks Off this Week in Manchester

50°
314w ago - Don't Panic has sent word that the LittleBigPlanet advance preview will be kicking off in Manchester, England on September 12th as part of a PlayStation-sponsored event.

As well as the opportunity to play the game pre-release, there will be talks from some local artists who have already been creating contents in the LittleBigPlanet world, and gamers can stop by to share their creativity in LittleBigPlanet before the game's retail release in late October.

Entrance is completely free but space is limited, so be sure to head out early.

Nano switch hints at future chips

50°
335w ago - World's smallest transistor, one atom thick and 10 atoms wide, out of a material that could one day replace silicon. The transistor, essentially an on/off switch, has been made using graphene, a two-dimensional material first discovered only four years ago.

Graphene is a single layer of graphite, which is found in the humble pencil. The transistor is the key building block of microchips and the basis for almost all electronics.

Dr Kostya Novoselov and Professor Andre Geim from The School of Physics and Astronomy at The University of Manchester have been leading research into the potential application of graphene in electronics and were the first to separate a sheet of the material from graphite

Super material

Graphene has been hailed as a super material because it has many potential applications. It is a flat molecule, with only the thickness of an atom, and both very stable and robust.

The researchers are also looking at its use in display technology - because it is transparent.

The Manchester-based scientists have shown that graphene can be carved into tiny electronic circuits with individual transistors not much larger than a molecule.

Dr Novoselov told BBC News that graphene had many advantages over silicon because it could...
