What happens when an iPhone bends too much? One man says his bent so much it punctured the battery and caught fire, causing second-degree burns to his leg.
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.
Stanford University scientists have developed a lithium-ion battery that warns users long before it overheats and explodes.
Researchers at Virginia Tech have developed a working sugar-powered fuel cell with energy density greater than that of current lithium-ion batteries.
Using a titanium dioxide gel, researchers make a battery that could one day allow electric cars to fuel up as fast as their gas-guzzling cousins.
Much cheaper, longer-range electric cars are on the way if Japan's Sekisui Chemical claims are realized in 2015.
With its lower-priced Model 3 on the way, Tesla's likely to see higher demand -- and if it's going to crank out more electric cars, it'll need lots more batteries.
The CEO of the electric car maker tweeted a mock-up hinting at an upcoming Tesla Motors product announcement next week.
Leaders of cities outside the typical tech metropolises -- specifically cities touched by Tesla's sprawling electric-car operation in California and Nevada -- want a bigger hand in tech manufacturing.
