'Spray-on': The Next Big Thing in Battery Design?

 

 

A team of researchers at Rice University have developed the ability to literally paint rechargeable lithium-ion batteries onto surfaces. The five layer, .5 mm battery, which can form around any curve or contour, will cause a major rethink in the way current portable devices are being designed, as they will no longer have to set aside space for a bulky battery to be built in. The 'spray-on' technology has been tested on a variety of surfaces including ceramic tile, glass, and steel.
