Foldable battery made from paper

Washington August 15 2007 AP: Imagine a battery made to shape like a pieces of paper. It can be bent, twisted, trimmed with scissors or molded into any shape needed. It may sound impossible but US researchers at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, is currently developing it. It main objective is to create a new type of battery to be used in electronic or similar fields that need smaller, lighter power sources.

The battery uses paper infused with an electrolyte and carbon nano tubes, both that embedded into the paper. The carbon nano tubes form the electrodes, the paper is the separator and the electrolyte allows the current to flow. This is where the nano technology is being applied to create something smaller and flexible in size. Some scientist is expecting to use this technology with solar cells and one possible application is to use this battery in an electric car.

However since the said battery is still under development, it sound very promising. Imagine a book equiped with audio & video clip similar to the magical newspaper seen in the Harry Potter’s movie. The possibility is endless.
