Decker Yeadon is a Brooklyn, New York-based architectural research firm that is as comfortable entering competitions as it is with nanotechnology. Trained as architects but fascinated by chemistry, co-founders Martina Decker and Peter Yeadon are using carbon nanotubes to experiment with new building materials that move without a motor. Their research could lead to innovations such as window shades that open and close depending on the room temperature, no mechanical parts needed. Watch their NanoINK transform an ordinary strip of printer paper into a flexible electrical conductor.
