Design your own materials

General description

1 000 000 years ago humanity used stone to make objects. 3 000 years ago bronze was the material number one. For the last 2 000 years iron is the most important material. We don't want to live in the history. We live in a new millennium. What will be the newest material for the new age? After stone, bronze and iron ages, how can we call the current age? Do you want to find the answer this question? Do you want to discover the newest materials technology?

The most important question is this : Can we find something new that will be harder, sharper, more resistant, cheaper? That will be the BEST material ever?

The answer is simply YES, WE CAN.
