Researchers create microbattery that could power insect-sized robots

Posted by in category: biotech/medical

The battery resolves a longstanding technological issue that no other battery design has ever addressed.

Micro batteries have the incredible potential to power microdevices, microrobots, and implantable medical devices. However, up to recently they have not been very efficient as they lacked power.

Unlocking the potential of smaller devices.
