UTD's nanotube forests yielding tiny-yet-strong crops

Abstract:
Two things are really quite amusing about this WFAA video chronicling a recent visit by reporter Jeff Brady to the lair of University of Texas at Dallas research scientist Mikhail Kozlov, who works in the field of cutting-edge minuscule physics at the Alan G. MacDiarmid NanoTech Institute:

The first is that the video employs an image of silk worms busily spinning as an example of "old technology" fiber harvesting, the likes of which the new home-grown forests of nanocrud are (presumably) designed to replace. Oddly, though, when comparisions are made regarding size, a human hair is used as the basis of comparision. (Why not compare the thickness of a nanovessel to that of a silk fiber, since we've already made that mental connection?)
