Paper-thin, foldable battery to attach to clothes


Japan's NEC has developed a thin, foldable battery to be used in cards or clothes, leading to new possibilities such as people walking through ticket gates with fare passes in their pockets. The 0.3-millimeter (0.012-inch) thick battery can support tens of thousands of signal transmissions on a single charge and can be recharged in less than 30 seconds, NEC said.



The battery "will be used extensively in the future to power all kinds" of gadgets ranging from electronic paper to tags that trace retail goods in real-time, it said.

It is "bringing us closer to a ubiquitous networked society by allowing access to the network anytime, anywhere," an NEC statement said.

It will open the way for small wearable computers, such as ticket cards that can be attached to a person's clothes, it said.

Close, Geroge Orwell. :thumb:

I can see that having a lot of potential, both for good things and for bad things. I have a feeling society would shoot down most of the bad things (at least in our culture). And the good things? Just imagine: cell phone pants. :D

Just make sure you got your phone programmed correctly, otherwise you might end up on the line with your mom.:p :blah:
