Sharp: Redefining Time-Tested Technology

The history of the use of batteries can be traced back to the 1800's. However, Sharp has revealed a mobile fuel cell prototype in which you can power your future tech-toy with a powered solution of Methanol. The fuel cell can produce energy using only methanol, air, and water. Still in it's prototype stages, this innovation shows a promising look at a "greener" side of technology, which many manufacturers are starting to focus on. By implementing such technology into laptops, and mobile phones, charging times can be made instant, which would be a must-have for those on the go.

Are we, as consumers, ready to replace technology that has served us well for decades? Let's hear your thoughts.

Batteries are older than the 1800s. They've been found in Egyptian tombs and the site of King Solomon's Temple.

It's about time they invented smth like this!

Remember Back to the Future Part 2? The DeLorean ran on waste! The year was 2015! That's around the corner for us!

Battery: a combination of apparatus for producing a single electrical effect b: a group of two or more cells connected together to furnish electric current; also : a single cell that furnishes electric current

it will still be considered a battery...just a greener battery

we can't get rid of batteries untill we advance our ability to wirelessly charge our stuff. and that's not goin too well at the moment
