“NanoDot” is powered by nanocrystals 2 nm in diameter. They are made up of bio-organic amino acids known as peptide molecules, which StoreDot says allows it to charge much faster while being able to discharge at a similar rate of lithium-ion batteries.
The beta version of NanoDot only works with Galaxy S4 batteries, yet StoreDot aims to create universal chargers for all devices. The company aims to have full production and retail by 2016, when the size of the charger can be reduced to a smaller size for mass appeal.
We’re seeing a big trend emerge with combining bio-organics with technology. Should the NanoDot model become successful, a precedent will be set for instantly charged-up technology. Outside of smartphones, this device can be incorporated within the wearable technology market, and perhaps spill into electric automobiles and more sophisticated robotics.
More immediately, the phrase “my phone is dead,” may become a relic of the past. For now, there’s still at least two years left to use it as a valid excuse for your friends.
