If the product is not affordable, the innovation used in to create the device will never come to fruition for the customer.

Pubudu,

I agree. If a company overprice the product, the consumer will not be willing to pay for it. Wth this business practice, sometimes innovation will get lost.

Cabe, from the looks of it even to prove that the technology is in working condition it might take couple of years. The working chemistry of the battery still needs alot of research.

Yes Pubudu,

But the attitude of the company seems to be right about it, lets hope that it they will keep on their research and would give the results on it faster. I am excited to see what innovation this technology can bring.

@Murray: So this proves that technology did exist from the early stages itself. All it needed was some sort of a push as well as a methodology to make things a bit easier.

You're right about the implementation, Cabe. Elton Cairns, who is quoted here and has designed batteries for GM's early electric cars and for NASA, likes to say that it takes years to fully appreciate what the real problems are with any battery chemistry.

Taimoortariq, I do believe in other way around cause I think that make people curious will do the hidden marketing for the brand which will have a positive image in long run.

Yes mardon, I would like to add more to your point which is efordability, cause that, when it come to marketing the product if it cannot afford by the target group it will only be just an innovation.

Putting aside the challenges of lithium air, it is good to see that the technical problems surrounding it are being taken heads on now. Notwithstanding all the challenges, lithium air batteries hold great promises for the future especially for electric vehicles. I wish them luck however long may be the road ahead.

Latest Analysis
Samsung's Galaxy line of smartphones used to fare quite well in the repairability department, but last year's flagship S5 model took a tumble, scoring a meh-inducing 5/10. Will the newly redesigned S6 lead us back into star-studded territory, or will we sink further into the depths of a repairability black hole?
Fifteen European research centers have launched EuroCPS to help European companies develop innovative products for the Internet of Things.
Get your Allman Brothers albums ready. The iconic Volkswagen Microbus may be poised for a comeback, and this time it could be electric.
In 2003, the world contained just over 500 million Internet-connected devices. By 2010, this figure had risen to 12.5 billion connected objects, almost six devices per individual with access to the Internet. Now, as we move into 2015, the number of connected 'things' is expected to reach 25 billion, ultimately edging toward 50 billion by the end of the decade.
NASA engineer Brian Trease studied abroad in Japan as a high school student and used to fold fast-food wrappers into cranes using origami techniques he learned in library books. Inspired by this, he began to imagine that origami could be applied to building spacecraft components, particularly solar panels that could one day send solar power from space to be used on earth.
