Carbon Nanotubes dramatically increasing in both length and strength

According to Next Big Future, 30cm-long nanotubes are now being created, with meter-long jobs in the offing.

This is fantastic news, not merely for the space-elevator applications they’re watching like hawks, but for simple human construction.  We’re good at building suspension bridges and woven material, and with the sorts of strengths they’re discussing (how’s tripling the strength of polyvinyl tape by increasing the weight by 1%?) it shouldn’t be too long until we start seeing CNT in all sorts of things that AREN’T body armor, space elevators, and other such things.
