The graphene ink has three unique qualities which make it very important; it’s a good conductor of electricity, highly flexible and has optical transparency. This is a major step towards production of cheap and foldable electronics.

Developers have used graphene to print out circuits on many materials. Graphene can work well even when just an atom thick or 14nanometres, meaning it can create a very flexible form. Various scientists have made unique inventions with graphene ink.

In some instances, developers have used modern miracle stuff graphene in printing out circuits on clothing, thereby enabling people enjoy a wearable tech which does not rely on having to attach computers to your body, wearing big watches of AR glasses.

American scientists at the Cambridge University have invented a piano made by printing piano circuit board onto a garment using highly conductive graphene, to the amazement of many, they have also printed its digital display onto a kinky plastic using graphene ink.

Scientists have developed electronic ink that can print on a laser to conduct electricity.

Some developers have suggested the use of printable circuits in embedding health monitors in garments. They have also said there is a possibility of having graphene phone displays printed on human skin. For instance, people who love watching TV in bed can have a television printed on their hands. The graphene ink can also be used in cargo loading zones; preferably airports to ensure planes are loaded with the right cargo.

Scientists have also developed a laser-based anti fraud detector to be used in identifying fake banknotes, luxury goods and pharmaceuticals. This detector is based on the method used to print liquid crystal lasers using ink jet printers. Upon the technology getting fully established, it will save the millions of people who buy fake products unaware while believing that they will recover.
