The design of electronics as we know them today is highly influenced by the form of their batteries. This with no doubt puts boundaries on just how far electronic designs can go. In other words…their all square in some way or another, thanks to the shape of most batteries.
So if batteries could be shaped in some way to compliment an electronics design, the element could be taken much further. No doubt offering more comfortable designs and probably even more stylish. Smaller too, whenever suitable.
LG might be the one to make this happen, with their research using nickel-tin coated copper wires, a rod and a lithium-ion cell. The result is a highly flexible battery having hardly any form limits. The downside is, as expected; the more it’s bent, the less capacity it has. This seems to be one the major problems with soft material battery research. But if LG can erase that issue and get this over to production, it will change electronic device designs as we know it. Naturally starting a whole new exciting era of electronic productions.
