Researchers have developed a way to make a battery and its casing stretchy, enabling future advancements in wearable electronics.
Chasing the ‘Holey’ Grail of Batteries
“In a paper published in Science, the researchers describe a porous form of graphene – the world’s thinnest and lightest nanomaterial – that overcomes some key challenges in creating next-generation batteries.”
Stretchable Solar Batteries May Power the Next Generation of Wearable Devices
“Researchers at the University of California, Berkeley have developed a new kind of stretchy battery specifically designed for wearable devices and clothing that require more flexibility than old-school electronics.”
New ‘superglue’ could seal the deal for stretchable batteries, soft robots
“Superglue is great for fixing busted bookshelves, suitcase wheels, and-of course-shoes. But what if you want to fuse something a little more jiggly, like the gel cushions used to pad crumbling spinal discs? You’d be out of luck, until now.”
Seeker inspires us to see the world through the lens of science and evokes a sense of curiosity, optimism and adventure.
