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
Sharon Glotzer and David Pine are hoping to create the first liquid hard drive with liquid nanoparticles that can store 1TB per teaspoon. They aren't the first to find potential data stores, as Harvard researchers have stored 700 TB inside a gram of DNA.
If you see a hitchhiker along the road in Canada this summer, it may not be human. That’s because a robot is thumbing its way across our neighbor to the north as part of a collaborative research project by several Canadian universities.
SpaceX has 3D printed and successfully hot-fired a SuperDraco engine chamber made of Inconel, a high-performance superalloy, using direct metal laser sintering (DMLS). The company's first 3D-printed rocket engine part, a main oxidizer valve body for the Falcon 9 rocket, launched in January and is now qualified on all Falcon 9 flights.
Stanford University researchers have found a way to realize what’s been called the “Holy Grail” of battery-design research -- designing a pure lithium anode for lithium-based batteries. The design has great potential to provide unprecedented efficiency and performance in lithium-based batteries that could substantially drive down the cost of electric vehicles and solve the charging problems associated with smartphones.
UK researchers have come up with a method for machining aerospace-grade, carbon fiber-reinforced composites, along with high-strength aerospace alloys, using an ultrasonically assisted machining device. It also works on high-strength aerospace alloys.
