InSolution » Stronger than Kevlar, light as a tee-shirt, and cheap all over
Improving polymer fibers (polyvinyl alcohol chains) by mixing in a few nanotube segments or larger nanochips, which cause the otherwise poorly ordered polymer chains in the polymer fiber to slide and align with the nanotube, making a more uniform and stronger fiber at substantially lower cost, while keeping their flexibility.

A Photo-Thermal-Electrical Converter Based On Carbon Nanotubes for Bioelectronic Applications - Miyako - 2011 - Angewandte Chemie International Edition - Wiley Online Library
Interesting biocompatible power transfer research for implantable electronics, since it uses lasers that can pass through living tissue. Only issue is inherent to the process; namely, you are using a medium to convert tissue penetrating laser light to heat, then using a conventional thermoelectric generator embedded in the medium to generate power internally, which means you have a non-trivial amount of waste heat to reject through body tissue and fluids. As an alternative to skin penetration for power transfer this is nice, and it is not sensitive to EMF interference like induction pads, but induction pads are more efficient probably and generate less heat internally. This might be a good application for sensors, but may not be ideal for larger devices like assist pumps or pacemakers.
