Inspired by snakes, bill-eating batteries are made
Seoul, South Korea: Experiments with brand new batteries are underway around the world, and now the Korea Institute of Machinery and Materials has designed a battery that eats and compresses and compresses the body and skin of snakes. can go.
The specially designed snake skin batteries can be used in soft robots, robotic creatures and wearables. In this way, these batteries will rotate and pull with the robot and wearable, but the power supply will continue.
For this, scientists have created six-cell battery cells that can be called small pieces of lithium-ion batteries. You can call them the ‘skin’ of a snake. Each piece will be attached to a strong polymer copper wire that will continue to work even when bent. Interestingly, each piece of battery will increase the power of the battery.
When the first sample of the battery made from the snake was tested, it was maintained even after 90% pulling and the battery was useful even after charging and discharging it 3600 times. Due to these features, flexible battery can be a revolutionary invention.
Such batteries can be inserted into a search and rescue robot after an accident. It will also be possible to use them in artificial muscles and body transplants. The next step will be to try to improve it further.
