Emerging Battery Technologies

Top 10 emerging technologies for 2014

Jogger runs around Chestnut Hill Reservoir in BostonTechnology has become perhaps the greatest agent of change in the modern world. While never without risk, positive technological breakthroughs promise innovative solutions to the most pressing global challenges of our time, from resource scarcity to global environmental change. However, a lack of appropriate investment, outdated regulatory frameworks and gaps in public understanding prevent many promising technologies from achieving their potential.

The World Economic Forum’s Global Agenda Council on Emerging Technologies identifies recent key trends in technological change in its annual list of Top 10 Emerging Technologies.A car drives into a heavily secured downtown the first day of the G20 Summit in Pittsburgh Council aims to raise awareness of their potential and contribute to closing gaps in investment, regulation and public understanding. For 2014, the Council identified ten new technologies that could reshape our society in the future.

The 2014 list is:

Body-adapted Wearable Electronics

From Google Glass to the Fitbit wristband, wearable technology has generated significant attention over the past year, with most existing devices helping people to better understand their personal health and fitness by monitoring exercise, heart rate, sleep patterns, and so on. The sector is shifting beyond external wearables like wristbands or clip-on devices to “body-adapted” electronics that further push the ever-shifting boundary between humans and technology.

The new generation of wearables is designed to adapt to the human body’s shape at the place of deployment. These wearables are typically tiny, packed with a wide range of sensors and a feedback system, and camouflaged to make their use less intrusive and more socially acceptable. These virtually invisible devices include earbuds that monitor heart rate, sensors worn under clothes to track posture, a temporary tattoo that tracks health vitals and haptic shoe soles that communicate GPS directions through vibration alerts felt by the feet. The applications are many and varied: haptic shoes are currently proposed for helping blind people navigate, while Google Glass has already been worn by oncologists to assist in surgery via medical records and other visual information accessed by voice commands.

I claimed that *it may* be running without a battery and that if this is the case it is a very cool toy. I never stated that Finsrud's toy is over unity. If it is 80-99% efficient as it appears it may be - kudos!
The maglev train is also very cool.
So is the atom perpetual, are spinning planets perpetual? Is there energy in vortexes? Can coils be improved? How does gravity control fit into emerging technologies?

Nah...GM and the rest dictate the price of

Every component in a car to their suppliers. Battery companies on teh cutting edge (zinc-air, Li poly) won't be treated that way (unless the price provides a big slice of engineering payback). They can't get a commitment on delivery until the technology's mature and on the backside of profitability.
Japan and China car makers treat their suppliers as partners, so get a faster jump on emerging technologies.
Of course, when a dime of price reduction on a part makes a couple million bucks difference on the bottom line...

Recently Honda Motor Company announced they would be rolling out their first hydrogen-powered automobile. Honda has a long standing tradition of building well-engineered, high quality, innovative automobiles, arguably among the best in the world. Unfortunately building hydrogen-powered cars is not a step that is in the best interests of consumers. While clean hydrogen power would seem to be an excellent idea, the technology, production, infrastructure, storage and other challenges are decades and billions of dollars away from being economically feasible. And unfortunately, it will continue to keep consumers dependent on a fuel that requires large-scale industry to produce, store and maintain
