Scientists with the Department of Energy have designed a new type of battery that they say outpaces the ubiquitous lithium-ion batteries in flammability, cost, and ability to hold a charge.
Researchers at Virginia Tech have developed a working sugar-powered fuel cell with energy density greater than that of current lithium-ion batteries.
Stanford researchers may have discovered a path to pure lithium batteries, which would mean lighter, smaller, and more powerful charges for our devices. The science of it is pretty dense; but if we don't need to find plugs for our phones anymore while we're out and about? We're in.
Today's show features some enterprising hackers who modded an ATM to play Doom, Stanford researchers discovering a potential path to a viable, pure lithium battery, and some mind-bending 360-degree video art.
Much cheaper, longer-range electric cars are on the way if Japan's Sekisui Chemical claims are realized in 2015.
Lawsuit accused Apple of luring away key engineers to work within a new battery division, fueling speculation that the iPhone maker has ambitions of developing an electric car of its own.
Lawsuit claims iPhone maker hired away critical employees to staff a new battery division.
New Zealand-based Rocket Lab has built a rocket engine that's not only 3D-printed -- it uses electric motors to drive the turbopumps.
With a 1,800mAh lithium polymer rechargeable battery housed tightly inside, the $59 Nomad Pod, due out in June, packs enough power for four complete charges of Apple Watch.
