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.
Does a battery pack case plus extra flash storage sound too good to be true? The Mophie Space Pack might be one of the best iPhone accessories ever seen.
Researchers at Virginia Tech have developed a working sugar-powered fuel cell with energy density greater than that of current lithium-ion batteries.
Apple keeps the latest MacBook Air updates on the inside, but greatly improved battery life and a lower starting price make up for a lack of flashy design changes.
Much cheaper, longer-range electric cars are on the way if Japan's Sekisui Chemical claims are realized in 2015.
The slimmer body and higher-res screen of the original Retina MacBook Pro were a revolutionary leap. This revamp adds modest internal upgrades for modest improvements, but price cuts to both the 13-inch and 15-inch models sweeten the deal.
Researchers are working on a lithium air battery that will make electric vehicles as practical as gas-powered cars.
This updated version of Dell's XPS 12 hybrid adds newer CPUs for improved battery life, but still works better as a laptop than a tablet.
