New buzzword in store for electronics industry

Abstract:
Consumers may soon have to learn a new word "olectronics" when buying electronic products now a scientific breakthrough has added new features to lamps and cell phones.

The first letter "o" in the word is borrowed from "organic" materials such as plastic, previously believed to act only as an insulator.

But three 2000 Noble laureates in chemistry changed that, discovering a way to make organic materials act like metal.

It then led to some astonishing research in nanotechnology, which promises to provide environmentally-friendly olectronic products
