Flat Foldable Batteries
It's been awhile since I posted about new tech, but this is really cool. It sounds like some cyberpunk William Gibson or Neal Stephenson. I'm all for some clothes that compute and whatnot.
The possibilities for NEC's 'flattery' - as we like to call it - are endless. Smartcards have been touted as an obvious use, but it would fit in nicely with the idea of intelligent paper too. Before long, you might be rolling up your Powerpoint presentation and handing out your interactive business cards.
There are no official plans to use it in any products yet, but NEC has promised to 'carry out aggressive research and development' to enhance the performance and make it a commericial reality.
