It is hard to imagine the spikey, prickly grass would ever be pleasant to touch, but the unique research project found it contained long fibres that dramatically increased the durability of plastics and rubbers. It will be ground into a powder and pulped to produce a product known as nanofibres. Researchers have been testing the strength of the fibres by adding it to latex and producing super condoms.
So what do you say? I can't hardly wait to see it with my own eyes!
