    Dutch startup Eurekite at the University of Twente developed flexiramics - a foldable, tissue-like material that is also fireproof and non-conducting, like most other ceramics.
    Eurekite's plan is to use the new material to manufacture a flexible ceramic PCB (printed circuit board) for heavy-duty electronics that would combine the flexibility and light weight of a polymer with the thermal and dielectric (electrically insulating) properties of a ceramic.
    10×10 cm piece of the material will cost under €1 (little more than $1).
