Gut Feeling Heralds New Generation Lithium Batteries

Gut Feeling Heralds New Generation Lithium Batteries

Cambridge Uni and Beijing Institute of Technology researchers have reportedly collaborated to develop a denser and potentially much longer lasting lithium battery. The concept is seemingly intestine-inspired

More details, for the bioengineering inclined, are at the following link: http://interestingengineering.com/batteries-more-energy-mimic-human-intestine/ 

Let's hope they can overcome reported limitations on recharge cycle repetitions and come up with a commercially viable improvement to existing charge times and battery life, otherwise it may result in a kick in the guts all round.  😂

#7 so what you're saying, Dean-san, is that bright sparks won't 'stop' until they have a flaming good idea? 😂

#8 historically, Kev, those with the best renewable energy ideas have been bought out by the industry magnates who do rule the world, then the ideas shelved.

Back in 2001 NYT Journalist Tom Friedman (author of The World is Flat and no relation to @Phil Friedman) stated that the first one to come up with a cheap, reliable, renewable power source will be the one to rule the world, regardless of politics. (My paraphrase).

Looks like we are still working to rule the world. Interesting concept, and better than putting a mini nuclear reactor in your pocket.

#6 it wasn't that long ago when Teslas were spontaneously combusting and Toyotas were not braking... Happens to the best of them.

#3 it wasn't that long ago when we said that about Korean quality control and now the Koreans make the best TVs in the world.

#1 You can take a technocrat to water but you can't make him drink. He's too busy trying to redesign the tap to enjoy the magnificent fluid coming out of it, Lada. There's a world of readers out there, Lada, queuing up to read our buzzes. Sometimes engagement comes from the least expected direction.
