【可弯曲的智能手机】松下公司近日生产出一款 0.55mm 厚的手机电池,它可以弯曲25mm、扭转25度。松下致力于塑造可承受弯曲和扭转而其特性不变的电池,以期未来能真正创造可弯曲的手机,改变“砖块手机”的现状。松下并不是唯一发展这类科技的公司,三星的柔性显示器也可能会在2017年发售。

BENDABLE SMARTPHONES: PANASONIC'S NEW FLEXIBLE BATTERY MAY PAVE THE WAY

It’s said that one day we’ll enjoy flexible smartphones rather than the solid bricks we use today, but in order for that to happen, there are a number of tech breakthroughs that we’ll need to see. For example, we’ll have to figure out a way to make batteries bendable.

Panasonic thinks it has come up with the solution. While still far from a consumer-ready product, the company has built a battery that’s 0.55-millimeters thick and able to bend as much as 25mm and twist 25 degrees. No, it’s not the foldable battery some were expecting, but it’s certainly a step in the right direction.

Perhaps even more important than the fact that the battery can bend is that it can withstand bending while still charging and providing power — something that todays lithium-ion batteries cannot do.

 While cool, the batteries have a long way to go before we’ll see them in our devices. Panasonic has only built batteries with between 17.5mAh and 60mAh capacities, so if they were to be implemented in a product today, they would really only be able to power extremely low-power smart textiles or smart cards. Still, Panasonic says that it intends to continue developing the tech, so perhaps one day we’ll see it inside a bendable smartphone.

“Panasonic’s new flexible battery can withstand bending and twisting beyond the Japanese Industrial Standards for identification cards,” said the company in a blog post. “When used in card devices such as smart cards and card keys that work on batteries, as well as body worn-devices and smart clothing, this battery can retain its characteristics even if the device is frequently bent or twisted.”

Panasonic isn’t the only company developing bendable tech — Samsung is thought to be prepping a commercially available flexible display at some point in 2017
