Chips made with carbon nanotubes?

There is an interesting story over at CNET about how Intel are working on practical applications of carbon nanotubes in semiconductor manufacturing.

If all goes well, carbon nanotubes could help pave the way for even smaller and faster chips.

The amazing world of ultra tiny. Nanotubes will have a practical use eventually.

hmmm carbon nano tubes seem to be practical for everything. I remember hearing about how they were going to be used in body armor.
