If you use wireless connections on your various devices today, there’s a very good chance that device is using a shared area of the wireless spectrum called radio waves. These waves float all around us, every day. Our phones, Wi-Fi routers, and even the electric meters on the side of our homes use radio waves […]
Graphene has been touted as a possible next generation material for wearables, smartphones, and other electronic devices, but scientists at Rice University suspect borophene, an atom-thick substance, could provide even better results. One of the main differences between graphene and borophene is the undulating structure it takes when moved from its typical state, metallic, to […]
At the recent Mobile World Congress Shanghai, I got the chance to look at a new battery solution that could challenge lithium ion technology for the energy storage throne. Zap&Go’s fast-charging solution uses graphene-based supercapacitors, with the goal of replacing billions of lithium ion batteries that are currently powering everything from smartphones to laptops to […]
Energy sources are holding back wearable devices.
