Hong Kong rival Gobee pulled out of Europe altogether at the beginning of 2018, citing “mass destruction” of its bike fleet.
One day soon, the “liberal” democracies on this planet will finally wake up to what they are doing to themselves.
The new material is so effective that it could be used to provide energy for sensors or even small computer processors. Instead of connecting small electrical devices to cables, they could generate their own electricity from temperature differences. The new material has now been presented in the journal “Nature”.
How does that fit into Alt-Wheels? AirTags and other such location devices.
Lithium-ion batteries are notorious for developing internal electrical shorts that can ignite a battery’s liquid electrolytes, leading to explosions and fires.
Engineers at the University of Illinois, however, have developed a solid polymer-based electrolyte that can self-heal after damage—and the material can also be recycled without the use of harsh chemicals or high temperatures.
Still years and years away from market…
