re: New architecture promises better batteries

Ioxus (with an "I" not an "L") is really onto something here, I think. By distributing the storage task among powered devices--kind of like bypass capacitors but with storage--it should be possible to build devices that have no centralized battery at all, just a bunch of hybrid ultra-capacitors all harvesting energy from vibrations and other localized motions that usually just cause friction. Its a revolutionary concept, but will require engineers to rethink their architectures. Well worth a try, I say. What do you think?

This is truly a remarkable achievement by Loxus, concept shown here is really very helpful for so many day to day needs in electronics devices, other new links showing the applications of this capacitors in working devices are most welcome as that is missing in the article.
