  • Future batteries - almost here

    Good article. Amazing number of big and small advances compiled in this article.

    Indicates a high probability that the world of powered devices (including cars) may change a lot faster than many might expect today.

    Future batteries, coming soon: charge in seconds, last months and power over the air

    ^been reading about various battery technologies that are supposedly just around the corner for a decade now. The harsh reality though, is most of them simply aren't able to be commercialized. Hopefully out of these ideas will eventually work, but there is a big difference between doing something in perfect conditions in a lab, and being able to make a factory to produce it.

    Some strange examples in there as well, like the tag heuer one. Nothing revolutionary there, citizen have had Eco drive solar watches for a decade now.
