Re: Inboard engines and a changing world

Young-hye Na, materials innovation manager for IBM Research’s battery division, says IBM has built prototype pouch battery cells in the lab, which give her group confidence that they could develop a commercial product, for limited applications (e.g. portable power tools) within one to two years. Developing the technology to compete with industry-standard lithium ions for electric vehicle powertrains will take, she says, a “longer time.”
The group has revealed precious little technical information, about their battery’s chemistry, configuration, or design (..."three new and different proprietary materials, which have never before been recorded as being combined in a battery"...).
IBM may sound optimistic about its breakthrough, but stories like this are nothing new.
