Ever wonder what life would be life if you could charge your smartphone's battery in just a few seconds? You're about to find out! StoreDot, a company in Tel Aviv, Israel, has found a way to charge your phone's battery in less than a minute.
The nanotechnology used to power these super-fast chargers was actually found through Alzheimer's research. A protein that shortens neurones in the brain causing Alzheimer's showed high capacitance, which is powered by an ability called "charge trapping." This is how electrons are held in place.
While our usual mantra is "Technology for the Sake of Humanity," this tech came out of people researching how to help Alzheimer's patients... so, is this a case of "Humanity for the Sake of Technology???"
StoreDot hopes to have the technology ready for sale by 2016.
