We’re one step closer to seeing bendable phones hit the market. A group of scientists led by Professor Lee Sang-young of South Korea’s Ulsan National Institute of Technology announced that they’ve successfully developed the world’s first bendable lithium ion batteries. Note that this is right on the heels of Samsung’s “Youm” flexible OLED display announcement at CES 2013.
The team documented its findings in a paper entitled “Imprintable, bendable and shape-conformable polymer electrolytes for versatile-shaped lithium ion batteries,” which was published in the German weekly scientific journal Advanced Materials.
