Fuel cells continue to inch forward. Angstrom Power Inc. integrated its hydrogen-based EverOn technology into an unaltered Motorola Motoslvr L7 phone, proving its role in products used almost constantly. EverOn offers as much as twice the run-time of batteries in side-by-side tests and offers recharge times of only 10 min. During the six-month proof of concept, the battery replacement was recharged with the Canadian company’s Micro Hydrogen system, which uses micro-fluidics to move the molecules from a refillable hydrogen storage tank into the fuel cell architecture. Motorola Mobile Devices is helping Angstrom advance the technology.
A new method of modeling how they are created with chemical vapor deposition (CVD) could reduce the cost of carbon nanostructures used for for research and commercial applications, including advanced sensors and batteries.
BMW has already incorporated more than 10,000 3D-printed parts in the Rolls-Royce Phantom and intends to expand the use of 3D printing in its cars even more in the future. Meanwhile, Daimler has started using additive manufacturing for producing spare parts in Mercedes-Benz Trucks.
