Because Materials are cool, Pyrolytic graphite

May 6th, 2013

Its not magic, but it sure is cool. Very diamagnetic, so it floats above strong magnets. Very thermally conductive (well in one plane, which on its own a difference of thermal conductivity of over 2 orders of magnitude depending on direction is awesome), cuts through ice like butter (as long as your fingers stay warm that is).
