Setting themselves for world domination if they can pull this off.

Pretty cool, I'm very curious as to when silicon will no longer be viable as a material due to physical constraints.

There is already a better alternative by using Black Phosphorus. The drawback is that they still do not have an optimum method of mass producing a wafer. If successful though you would expect far lower voltages due to the higher carrier mobility. Basically electrons flow faster and easier through BP than silicon. That would mean far better power consumption.

Drawback though was that making thin layers used a scraping technique from crystal BP. So its far from ideal.
