According to Lawrence Dubois from SRI International , mobile computing will be transformed by high-power batteries that can be charged in less than 10 minutes and by fiber batteries built into clothing.
Among the technologies being developed:
– batteries that run for four hours after a 10-minute re-charge.
– printed batteries that use modified inkjet printer or a standard printing press.
– a fiber battery, made with thin carbon fibers coated with fiber materials. The battery could become the case of a PDA or mobile phone, or woven into clothes.
