When it comes to cell phones, it seems the world has become almost addicted to them. No matter where we go or what we are doing, we see countless people using their phone in one way or another. One thing all cell phone users have to struggle with is battery life, but wouldn’t it be great if that was no longer a concern?
Researchers at the University of Washington are trying to make “low battery” alerts a thing of the past by creating battery-free cell phones. You can see a quick video explanation of how it works here.
Now, this technology is nowhere near ready, so don’t expect to see battery-free phones at your local Best Buy anytime soon, but this technology would be an absolute game-changer once it is fully out there. We’d all love to live in a world where battery life is not a concern, but it’s probably going to be a while before we get there.
