A Plastic That Conducts Electricity?

Plastics usually stop electricity in its tracks, but scientists have figured out a way to keep the electrons flowing.

why is there conductive plastic near my anus?

Автор Fergus Wyrm ( назад)
Wow the editors must have had fun with this part.

Ok so I like to listen to scishow too and from work so I don't really WATCH the video; I LISTEN to them. At 2:00 I thought there was something wrong with my car's stereo system and then I thought it got worse or the thought I was going crazy crossed my mind. I decided to replay the video later and I laughed so hard my dip fell out.

I dunno how long Tuna's been editing these videos, but for the love of god let there be more hilarious editing a la the Bucket Brigade.

But oi don' wan't moi smart phone to bend....

Автор IlrysKadiatu ( назад)
I think SciShow should make an episode featuring "accidentally awesome" mistakes in chemistry, things like conductive plastic and Teflon.

Автор GameSquid ( назад)
lol makign a bendy cell phone would hardly add any usefulness. it's fairly easy to avoid breaking a phone. but using a phoen that bends under your touch will probably be less practical than a regular one. only people who are extremely outdoorsy would want this technology.

Where did you buy that shirt Hank?:) love it!

Stop editing the spaces off the end of your video. It makes it unwatchable.

I'm calling it, AI invented this and guided humans to "discovered" now they're in their way to print terminators

it's funny how fuckups become a discovery... what if you had to call it like it was?

There is also conductive rubbers(usually silicon based). One app of it is connecting to LCD screens in digital watches, small game toys etc. It is composed of alternating strips of conductive and non-conductive rubber. A home made pressure sensor can be made using this because with pressure the resistance changes.

Do they have conductive plastic filament for 3D printers yet? It would be cool to print circuits within a 3D object.

Imagine what WHITE GENOCIDE would be like.
You would have to flood EVERY and ONLY White countries with millions of non-Whites.
Then you would have to demoralize ALL Whites by screaming the R-Word! at them if they objected.
Then you would have to pass laws to FORCE integrate all those non-Whites into every facet of White society.
Then you would have to…Oh wait. This is already happening!
They say it’s “anti-racist” but it’s simply anti-White.
Anti-racist is a codeword for anti-White.

I have to give a big kudos to the editors, to you guys I give my entire apreciation for making those videos funnier and much more enjoyable

Автор james draper ( назад)
i don't know if you've seen this already but veritasium just proved the Coriolis effect with Destin, and they pointed out that you said it was "bunk" could you clarify or retract your findings? they explain thoroughly that it has nearly no affect on drain direction unless precisely controlled. can you test and confirm? for peer review sake.

so he simply addes "metal" to plastic and called it plastic

Автор nunya ( назад)
You might want to recheck your facts. The Ransburg Number 2 Process Electrostatic Paint Gun has a schematic dating 1961, which has a plastic bell that transfers 90,000 volts positive to the paint. If this bell is cleaned in laquer thinner or MEK, it will strip too many electrons making the bell almost useless. So, they are cleaned in xylene.

Wow, with plastic solar panels we can stop our reliance on fossil fuels for energy. Wait, isn't fossil fuel a big component to plastics? Shit!

You can say that I am the same as conductive plastic. We both were made As an accident

Автор y2ksw1 ( назад)
Conductive plastic was always a problem and insulated plastic had to be invented in order to use it for electric cables. The changes you are talking about are about "good" conductors.

Two thoughts. One; isn't a shiny conductive foil what the UFO crowd says some UFOs are skinned with? Two; that shirt looks like some kind of leftover from a DoD camouflage experiment.

Автор Christie Nel ( назад)
I always feel disappointed that this sort of thing has to discovered by accident.

Автор JeffOf813 ( назад)
it's going to be a scroll with retractable borders that stiffen the screen for a certain distance... and they will prolly give you an extra amount you can pull out for a sidebar style menu with pins and notes. all rolling up into a pen sized device that houses the rolled up screen, all needed ports, and a smaller pen to detach for use with the scroll while extended... its going to be awesome... it's so obvious to me lol.

Does this mean we'll get paid to recycle plastic bottles like we do to recycle copper wire? 💰 ♻️ 💵

Автор ChaosManticore ( назад)
Plastic isn't quite as heat resistant as silicon, so that might be an issue.
Another problem with plastic materials are aging, which makes them brittle.
Not great if you want to keep bending your phone for years to come.
People will probably buy a new phone every 2-3 years to keep up with advancing tech.
So might be less of an issue unless they are really attached to their new shiny plastic phone.

Plastics are the future... After what I saw with Starlite and now this; I believe that with the right molecular pattern you can change any property in polymers.
