Ubook is a single machine infinitely transformable with a single touch, streamlining the way we live and work. Najmtek changes the way users interact with their technology as they participate in and contribute to the world. The only limitation is the user’s imagination.

Flexible Battery technology is on the way

While mobile phone technology has improved dramatically in the last five years, one element has not seen any radical change: the batteries that power our devices!

They have not increased too much in capacity, and they also remain inflexible in shape. This is why so many phones keep the same basic rectangle shape for years.

Researchers at the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) hope to change this! They have developed a promising solid state, thin-film lithium-ion battery that claims the highest energy density ever achieved for a flexible battery. It will give the possibility to phone of next future to be flexible and to hold more capacity.

Professor LEE, the team lead, said: “The advent of a high performance flexible thin film battery will accelerate the development of next-generation fully flexible electronic systems in combination with existing flexible components such a display, memory, and LED. “

A high-performance lithium-ion flexible battery would be obviously a giant step toward fully-fledged flexible electronics systems and would open the door to flexible e-paper, wearable devices, and better piezoelectric systems that harvest energy from mechanical forces.

Companies such as Samsung have already shown prototypes of flexible displays before, with production models expected next year. This may be possible as the new design, which showed for the first time that high-performance thin films can be used for flexible batteries, may be commercialized as early as next year.
