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.

Advertised as the "Most Powerful Tablet Under $100," the Kindle Fire HD 6 was too tempting for the team at iFixit to pass up. Join us to find out if inexpensive means cheap, irreparable, or just down right economical. It's teardown time!
The first photos made with a 3D-printed telescope are here and they're not as fuzzy as you might expect. A team from the University of Sheffield beat NASA to the goal. The photos of the Moon were made with a reflecting telescope that cost the research team 100 to make (about $161 US).
At Medical Design & Manufacturing Midwest, Joe Wascow told Design News how Optimal Design prototyped a machine that captures the wing-beat of a duck.
The increased adoption of wireless technology for mission-critical applications has revved up the global market for dynamic electronic general purpose (GP) test equipment. As the link between cloud networks and devices -- smartphones, tablets, and notebooks -- results in more complex devices under test, the demand for radio frequency test equipment is starting to intensify.
Much of the research on lithium-ion batteries is focused on how to make the batteries charge more quickly and last longer than they currently do, work that would significantly improve the experience of mobile device users, as well EV and hybrid car drivers. Researchers in Singapore have come up with what seems like the best solution so far -- a battery that can recharge itself in mere minutes and has a potential lifespan of 20 years.
