CW: Could that mean the end of our hundred-year dependency on batteries?
Iannucci: Maybe. I think it's likely that there will be energy storage in some form in the device and the nature of batteries is probably going to change. The nanoscientists and what they are doing at the University of Cambridge points to that direction. We're looking at technologies that could only be made on nanoscale to create energy storage devices that are sort of a hybrid between a battery and a capacitor. A supercapacitor probably is the best description for that. And maybe that wireless power becomes a long-term direction when you'll have some capabilities for energy storage. When you're outside the range of your local wireless power transmitter you can still operate, or you're in range, recharge it.
