With the emergence of ubiquitous computing and integration into every fabric of our lives, bulky and rigid battery technologies have remained stagnant for decades, limiting this continuous advancement in technology. Now is the time to revolutionize how we design, manufacture, and integrate battery technology to empower a new chapter of technology integration, where it essentially becomes invisible to us. As one of the visionaries of Ubiquitous Computing, Mark Weiser, once said, "The most profound technologies are those that disappear". They weave themselves into the fabric of everyday life until they are indistinguishable from it.
For decades, technology has been limited and forced to be designed by battery technology that has always remained bulky, rigid, and non-conforming due to legacy manufacturing processes. Using our innovations in materials and customizable manufacturing, we will reshape batteries and $40B flexible electronics they empower.
