The problems will come when Li batteries are *really* popular for cars. There is nowhere near enough Li to supply even a fraction of the ultimate demand. Researchers might spend their timer more profitably looking at Al and Mg.

Who says battery technology can't keep up? With research like this concentrating on ways to boost existing lithium ion batteries, plus efforts elsewhere to craft lithium-air and more exotic formulations, I predict a bright future for battery technology. Will battery technology ever catch up to Moores Law? What do you think?

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
