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
From home enthusiasts to workers on the manufacturing floor, everyone's imagination is captured by the potential of 3D printing. Prototyping, spare parts creation, art delivery, human organ creation, and even mass product production are all being targeted as current and potential uses for the technology.
ABI Research, a firm based in the UK that specializes in analyzing global connectivity and other emerging technologies, estimates there will be 40.9 billion active wirelessly interconnected “things” by 2020. The driving force is the usual suspect: the Internet of Things.
Just in time for Earth Day, chemicals leader Bayer MaterialScience reported from the UTECH Europe 2015 polyurethane show on programs and applications using its materials to help reduce energy usage. The company also gave an update on its CO2-based PU as that eco-friendly material comes closer to production.
Solar and wind energy are becoming more viable as a source of energy on the electric grid. For decades, the major drawback to solar and wind was that they’re temperamental. A cloudy day kills solar and a still day renders the wind turbines useless. Automation tools, however, are providing a path to help these renewables become practical.
In honor of Earth Day, the National Security Agency has launched the STEM Recycling Challenge in Maryland schools to encourage kids to think about where the garbage they throw out every day actually goes. The agency has also introduced “Dunk,” a muscular blue cartoon recycling bin wearing shorts and sneakers.
