Panasonic, insistent on proving that its new oxyride batteries have been increased by 120% in terms of efficiency and longevity, decided to prove the batteries' buffness in a logical way -- by powering an airplane with them earlier this summer.
With our recent obsession with batteries, we stopped our "batteries + anything" Google search long enough to admire the work of Panasonic and the Tokyo Institute of Technology.
Hell-bent on showing off the batteries, the Tokyo Institute designed a glider plane that flew -- albeit, briefly -- on 100 of the oxyride batteries. While it's certainly not the "21st Century Wright Brothers" as they're already claiming, we'll certainly salute you with our battery-powered flashlight over our solar-panel charging monitor.
