Bendable Graphene Batteries

Researchers at the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) may be on the cusp of creating something special: Bendable batteries that could have better performance than their stiff, inflexible cousins.

Made from graphene, these batteries would do well paired up with the flexible OLED displays.

In fact, coincidentally enough, the KAIST team is also attempting to apply their bendable graphene battery technique to OLED displays and solar cells. The future, how bendy it's become!

Nice, lots of possibilities for new technology in the future. Maybe even bendable e-readers that behave much more like paper.

That's really cool. Bendy phones now please. Banana shaped.

Definitely gonna need some flexible ipads in here.

Looks quite promising. Hope to see this at a marketable level in the future.

Wow, nice! I hope that these are more environmentally friendly than their older counterparts.

I'm dying to get my hands on one of those new oled display phones

This will also be nice for design as well

The potential is limitless! Although I can't think of one yet, but there are smarter people out there.

Cool stuff

Tarah said...

haha thats nifty, makes me think of those bendy pencils that were all the rage in elementary school

this is AWSOME

great to see batteries get even better

There are many possibilities here ranging from a more compact battery to an increase in safety.

that is like the best idea ever!

Nokia is already developing nokia morph which bends :D

never thought id see the day!

I remember reading an article around 2008 maybe saying flexible phones and screens will be available to all by 2010. What a Joke! Hopefully these batteries will become mainstream and have a low carbon footprint.
