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.
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.
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.
Altair has released an update of its HyperWorks computer-aided engineering simulation suite that includes new features focusing on four key areas of product design: performance optimization, lightweight design, lead-time reduction, and new technologies.
At IMTS last week, Stratasys introduced two new multi-materials PolyJet 3D printers, plus a new UV-resistant material for its FDM production 3D printers. They can be used in making jigs and fixtures, as well as prototypes and small runs of production parts.
In a line of ultra-futuristic projects, DARPA is developing a brain microchip that will help heal the bodies and minds of soldiers. A final product is far off, but preliminary chips are already being tested.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
