Nano Battery & Terminator

A couple here from my brother:


Although they don’t necessarily follow Moore’s law, batteries have still gotten smaller and more efficient as the years pass. The current go-to power cell of choice is the lithium-ion battery. It’s already quite small as it is, but some scientists think it can get even smaller. How small? Try nanometers.

Self-repairing Robots.

Well, it looks like this is one aspect of fictional robotics that’s starting to catch up with reality. Researchers at Arizona State designed a system that lets synthetics recreate the natural healing process found in organics. It uses shape-memory or mimetic polymers embedded with a network of fiber optics. The network senses any damage to the system, then delivers heat to the “wounded” area to repair it.
