Chasing the 'Holey' Grail of Batteries https://www.seeker.com/tech/materials... "In a paper published in Science, the researchers describe a porous form of graphene - the world's thinnest and lightest nanomaterial - that overcomes some key challenges in creating next-generation batteries."
Stretchable Solar Batteries May Power the Next Generation of Wearable Devices https://www.seeker.com/tech/stretchab... "Researchers at the University of California, Berkeley have developed a new kind of stretchy battery specifically designed for wearable devices and clothing that require more flexibility than old-school electronics."
New 'superglue' could seal the deal for stretchable batteries, soft robots http://www.sciencemag.org/news/2017/0... "Superglue is great for fixing busted bookshelves, suitcase wheels, and-of course-shoes. But what if you want to fuse something a little more jiggly, like the gel cushions used to pad crumbling spinal discs? You'd be out of luck, until now." ____________________
