Nanotechnology breakthrough- Invention of Paper battery

Imagine if a piece of paper powered your cell phone or cd player. That’s the latest piece of amazing technology that researhcers at RPI, New York have come up with. The new battery, that looks like a piece of paper could one day provide a lightweight power source for electronics and other devices. The prototype square battery would be printed like a newspaper.

Dr. Shaijumon Manikoth, a reserach associate and nanotechnologist at RPI says it is still a work in progress. “We were just working on it, how to come up with an integrated device which itself is a battery and which can be rolled up and twisted and inserted in any kind of devices,” said Dr. Manikoth.

The research was funded by the New York State Office of Science, Technology and Academic Research and the National Science Foundation.

    how do you think they pulled off 911, the they want us to watch and this with a paper battery. Teh ters would lov it! <3

    They sort of did… they mentioned cell phones and other devices. Not very specific, I agree, but it gives an idea. I think the implied power density is roughly the equivalent to those other battery types. But I could be wrong.

    They talked of …
    They talked of plasitc batteries yers ago, but they have not come on line yet, they will have to deal with something like a cellphones case as the battery, which would greatly reduce the size but heat is the major problem!

    I heard nothing about how it works, just another case of the media dumbing everything down for drooling masses. Tv news sucks

    I’m not wrong, the news story is a piece of shit. Maybe the story is correct, maybe this is going to revolutionize power systems technology. It is simply impossible to say from this story. If there are technical specifications about this product, please post the URL.

    truly amazing

    truly amazing
    theory problem with mind it can only look at one aspect at a time so we are creating the interpretation of what is known by subjective experiment in other words we cannot see totality at any one time its only because you are thinking it at that moment in time.its like having a circle of limitation or parameters.and you cannot see outside that circle due to limits of subjectivity experience.and just maybe you cannot come up with an experiment to know it.create experiment to know.

    that was completely …
    that was completely useless as a form of news. there was no news. just some guy rolling a black piece of plastic around claiming it was a battery. How much power can be stored? Whats the expected life? What temperatures and other environmental conditions are required for it to operate? Local news is just pure shit.

    Not really. This …
    Not really. This is one of those things that made news, but it has to keep doing something to keep making news. The unpleasant things, like wars, are developing more, so we see more of them. These people haven’t really made anything that has been released yet, but if it’s actually marketed, you bet it’ll make news.

    We get that he has an accent. Deal with it.

    The reason stories …
    The reason stories like this and other important issues arent known or shared about on mass media is because the government wants weak minded people to be occupied with dumb t.v. shows and other stupid crap, to keep their minds off of the real issues

  15. SlavaVB says:

    do a google search …
    do a google search on potato or lemon powered clocks. the size of the battery means nothing if they dont specify the power density

    This is a great achievement, I can’t imagine how the f**k do news like this have 50 seconds and celebrities get all of the attention.

    Yeah, you probably could. However, this nanobattery could be a stepping stone to bigger and better things.

    without an answer to your question, this video means nothing… because I can just take a thin slice of potato and power a watch with it.
