There’s Finally Hope: Flexible Batteries for Wearables

Imprint Energy's Flexible Battery

Imprint Energy’s Flexible Battery

If any of you have Google Glass, you know that the one thing you wished it had that it does not is more battery power. Wearable technology has many underlying technologies that aren’t quite ready for wearables. Typical situation – the main hardware exists long before other necessary parts, including software. The only time I can remember the opposite being true was with Microsoft Kinect. That hardware was so ahead of its day I remember Microsoft asking all their developers at a conference soon after Kinect was launched “to break it, hack it, and make it do stuff” (or something like that!)

Wearables use a lot of energy. They also have to have flexible batteries or else wearables like clothing would defeat the entire point.

In comes a company in CA called Imprint Energy. They announced a zinc-polymer battery that’s very easy to manufacture. So far, the name of the battery is ZincPoly batteries LOL.

On top of being very flexible, they’re non-toxic! Awesome! Imprint Energy has millions in investor dollars to complete the manufacturing process, testing, and ultimately leading to distribution.

Enjoy the video, and see you soon!
