Default Carbon nanotube "quantum" wires: the next wave?

"Quantum wires"--that's the new buzzword, folks.

http://media.rice.edu/media/NewsBot....SnID=546346383

(mind the wordwrap)

Basically, NASA has awarded Rice University $11 million
to create the most expensive 1 meter patch cable
ever built. Mind you, the stuff's to be 10 times more
conductive than pure copper, and lighter, too. I can
only imagine the esoteric cable folks' expressions of
enterprising lust when this stuff can be mass-produced.

Might be difficult to solder, though...
