Plastic Battery Invented!

Engineers at Brown have invented a battery that uses plastic, instead of metal, to conduct electricty. The new device, “marries the power of a capacitor with the storage capacity of a battery.”

Exciting stuff, but the question on everyone’s tongues is… does this mean it won’t go Hiroshima in my laptop?

    Good. Maybe lady einstein can walk that sucker down the street to the Tah-get in Wah-wick and pop it in the granma-go.

    Interesting..hopefully they won’t overheat and start melting the plastic.

    But oh no, it could be used explode an airplane and can’t be detected by metal detectors!
