Carbon Augmented Spider Silk
This link came as a suggestion by a Hackaday editor, and it had been passed over by many of the other writers. It was based on a college paper where a collection of spiders were sprayed with graphene and carbon nanotubes in the hopes of changing the properties of their silk. The paper reported that the resulting silk was stronger than any naturally occurring fiber, but it was only performed a single set of spiders and not peer-reviewed, but it's an interesting concept. The graphic for this article was not readily available, so I cobbled one together with a stock photo of a tarantula and some clips from the paper.

You can find all my Hackaday articles on my author page.
