Re: Batteries
Building much better batteries is easier than having a redesign of the architecture of the IOT that takes up less charge. Companies with an IOT outlook should therefore find new ways of powering their devices.

Re: Batteries
This certainly would get waves of approval, but companies (in order to use this kind of an idea) would have to be extra cautious because they are mixing electronics with health, and the companies not necessarily are a healthcare IOT company. In order to get warm welcomes from the crowd, they must analyze if this idea would work, and would not rather hurt the sentiments and cause health problems among people.

Re: Batteries
Now there's an interesting development. Better yet, that electical power has nowhere to come from save from the calories we eat. So, the new bottom line might be - power your computing devices and lose weight by doing it.

Re: Batteries
I agree. But, given how much IT and related technolgies have reduced overall energy demand for almost everything, and how little power computing itself requires, it just seems somehow ironic that this is a major concern.

Re: Batteries
I just read an article about wearable tattoos that emit electricity. Maybe wearable tech in the future will be powered by our own skin or body chemistry - battery required.

Re: Batteries
You can A. build much better batteries to handle current draw -- or, B. drastically reduce draw to extend battery usefulness, or C. do a bit of both. Sounds like the plan is more B, with some C.

The energy efficiency and its infrastructure to support it should be sustainable. Finding the right methods and measurements to ensure its future effectiveness is important.

Batteries
What's been accomplished here is amazing, and what's on tap seems even more so. But, probably the biggest disappointment of the 21st Century so far is the failure to produce a battery system that can store enough power to keep our mobile devices running, and our nascent electric cars, too, for that matter.
