There are at least two big challenges with creating wearable technology. The first is to actually design something that people will want to buy and use, and the second is to keep the device in juice. Here we’re going to look at the second.
The battery design and function of a wearable device is anything but trivial. We need to develop batteries that are flexible, thin, long-lasting and durable…a huge set of requirements that is very difficult to achieve. But one startup, Imprint Energy, thinks it’s got a leg up with a printable, durable battery.
