I guess I'll need to wear a pocket protector to protect my shirt against phone poop.

And alcohol fuel cells will continue to power my laptop.  It's only been 15 years since those were 3 years away from commercial use.

Every technology that will extend battery life will forever be 3 years away from production.

Screw you subby. I'm powered by anger and fueled by hate.

Mr. Eugenides: /My car is powered by a wave-disk engine too!

I have a bachelors in mechanical engineering and I find that hilarious. It's a type of engine that NO ONE HAS BUILT. Someone funded a machine shop, er, fabrication lab with the grants written for that contraption.

Watch this. Someone won't get this. Someone will want to change the speed.

A Sterling cycle engine coupled with a generator AND ONLY A GENERATOR to charge and power an auto would probably be a leap for hybrids. Get it up to temp, leave it there, cruise on the output, accelerate from the output plus the battery.

It feels like I read about a new battery technology every three months. I just wish the media would get together and agree not to run these stories until the new tech is actually on store shelves.

Will it also be made of CHEMICAL X?

Brawndo. It's got what your tablet craves.

First you get the sugar, then you get the power, then you get the weemen

Pour some sugar on me, in the name of battery life!

I'm powered by whisky, caffeine and impure thoughts.

Soylent iPad is fueled by people! PEOPLE!

Ahead of their time those Transformers were.

/did anybody even watch this?

Using carbohydrates as fuel instead of hydrocarbons? I don't see why not. They are made of the same elements.
2014-01-23 04:21:13 PM
I need fuel!

That bullshiat line might work on your wife,  Subby, but it won't work on us.

I can assure you my booze has very little sugar content.
