This seems like a great technology for any low power, long life, remote sensing/telemetry application. I didn't see any information on recycling of this type of battery. Is end of life for one of these packs another disposal challenge in the making?
I seem to remember a few years back there was talk of a sensor system that had a very low current draw and was able to power itself via vibrations from outside. Sort of like the battery-free watches that I've seen. I wonder if that technology can be combined with a system like this to recharge with motion.
I agree with Rob, especially considering there have all ready been 39 reported shark attacks this year. It is good that this information is made available not only for aquatic applications but for many other applications that require long battery life due to limited access or charging. Good post!!
The company says it anticipates high-definition video for home security and other uses will be the next mature technology integrated into the IoT domain, hence the introduction of its MatrixCam devkit.
Siemens and Georgia Institute of Technology are partnering to address limitations in the current additive manufacturing design-to-production chain in an applied research project as part of the federally backed America Makes program.
Most of the new 3D printers and 3D printing technologies in this crop are breaking some boundaries, whether it's build volume-per-dollar ratios, multimaterials printing techniques, or new materials types.
