The wires are fully functioning, with current-carrying capacity equivalent to that of a microprocessor's copper cable, despite being 20 times thinner — and 10,000 times narrower than a human hair.
Men occasionally stumble over the truth, but most of them pick themselves
up and hurry off as if nothing had happened.
