This is freaking cool, because of how trivially easy it is to fabricate.

In the video, they literally used a DVD-Rom drive with a small amount of material spread on a disc, then spun up the drive, using the laser to oxidize the carbon, converting graphite to graphene. These are high-power capacitors that can maintain a charge like a battery does, and costs only pennies to make.
The ramifications of this are mind-boggling, and I honestly hope that the UCLA team who discovered this process have filed necessary patent applications.

Tesla also claimed to be communicating with martians.

That was just Thomas Edison, with a coat hanger on his head, messing with him.

Yes Tesla lost it in the end , but his tesla coils according to his theory , could shoot elecricity up into the ionosphere and berecaptivated via the ionosphere at other points on the globe . He was a genius , a bitt off but a genius nonetheless. His works have never been fully investigated .
