The Impact of Emerging Technologies: Virus-Assembled Batteries - Technology Review

The Impact of Emerging Technologies: Virus-Assembled Batteries - Technology Review:

"More than half the weight and size of today's batteries comes from supporting materials that contribute nothing to storing energy. Now researchers have demonstrated that genetically engineered viruses can assemble active battery materials into a compact, regular structure, to make an ultra-thin, transparent battery electrode that stores nearly three times as much energy as those in today's lithium-ion batteries. It is the first step toward high-capacity, self-assembling batteries."
