We're increasingly seeing carbon fiber used in tech applications, especially as a mobile phone case. This latest mobile phone case from Carbon Fiber Gear for the iPhone 3G is the lightest one in the world, weighing just 8.5 grams and is only 0.045 inches thick.
The carbon fiber fabric used in the iPhone 3G case comes from the same exact stuff that Ferrari and Airbus use in their applications.
Implications - The reliance of contemporary society on tablets, laptops and smartphones has increased rapidly in the last few years. Companies can capitalize on this by investing in products that accentuate these items by either providing stylistic additions, protective covers, or offer a way to increase the effectiveness of the technology.
