NANOTECHNOLOGY UPDATE: Wax-filled nanotech yarn behaves like powerful, super-strong muscle. “New artificial muscles made from nanotech yarns and infused with paraffin wax can lift more than 100,000 times their own weight and generate 85 times more mechanical power during contraction than the same size natural muscle, according to scientists at The University of Texas at Dallas and their international team from Australia, China, South Korea, Canada and Brazil.”
