Fuel cell tech is literally just around the corner from being inside many of our gadgets, and with this new design it could allow for some unusually-shaped gizmos. A company called MyFC is showing these bendy, flexible hydrogen-powered cells that can be draped over the interior curved surfaces of a gadget in a way that is tricky with current battery tech. The FuelCellSticker devices are just 0.11-inches thick and weigh only 0.2 ounces, and can put out 0.5V at 0.9W, though you'd stack them for more volts. There's also a more conventional-shaped model, and the company is starting to make them to order. Clever stuff. [Crunchgear]
Just around the corner....Was i the only person to catch that horrible pun....Back to the post. I think that this will help but this isn't anywhere near production and i doubt we'll see this in the states for another 2-3years. Japan will probably use this in their phones and then we'll get this a year or two later. 3-5 years max. That seems like a long time to me. Nd im guessing this can be recycled which will be a good thing in end too.
