What we can learn about Flexible Electronics from an old Apple Patent

Apple filled this patent in 2011, so this is not  a new patent, but it demonstrate  the interesting aspects  of non-rigid HCI design.

Printable, flexible battery offers 10 times the density of lithium-ion

Scientists at the University of California (UC) San Diego demonstrated the battery’s potential by using it to power a flexible display system, where it outperformed lithium coin cell batteries and was able to be recharged 80 times without any major evidence of capacity loss. The researchers imagine it finding use in soft robotics, wearables and other wireless devices, with the flexible nature opening up some interesting possibilities.

Production of Flexible solar cells

So far two devices have integrated the Powerfoyle tech: A bike helmet with an integrated safety taillight (by POC), and a pair of wireless headphones (by Urbanista). Although neither has yet been commercially launched — but both are slated to go on sale next month.

 

Importance: It amplifies the  future where non-rigid interfaces are popular. For more information about non-rigid Human Computer Interaction, check Deformable UI directory
