Can Moore's Law last another 40 years?

At the Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco, Intel's Justin Rattner and Michael Garner talk about materials and processes that will be used in the next 40 years to increase chip performance and advance production. Rattner and Garner discuss the future use of CMOS (complementary metal oxide semiconductor) technology and carbon-based devices such as carbon nanotubes.

Repelling bullets with nanotube armors

Australian engineers have found a way to use the elasticity of carbon nanotubes to not only stop bullets penetrating material but actually rebound their force. Their anti-ballistic carbon nanotubes are very different from the current materials used to design bullet-proof jackets, such as Kevlar, Twaron or Dyneema fibers. Current jackets can stop bullets, but the users can still be severely wounded by the strength of the impacts. On the contrary, these future nanotechnology-based jackets not only stop the bullets, but they repel them, thus avoiding 'blunt force trauma.' The research team doesn't say when such bullet-proof jackets might become available.
