Buckyball applications?

  1. Sep 4, 2010 #1
    So it's the anniversary of the buckyball today. I understand it's been a breakthrough to uncover a new form of carbon structure, but personally, I haven't followed the story during all this time. While I understand it has motivated much research and stimulated many ideas, I'm wondering if it has found any mass market application yet. Is it still mostly an object of curiosity and hope or am I now dependent on them without realizing it? What's the state of research into buckyballs, nanotubes and graphene? Where are they used? What's the latest progress? What are the latest projects?
