+ - Another bad battery idea for electric vehicles...->

Submitted by lurking_giant
lurking_giant (1087199) writes "From an article on PHYSORG.COM, "Researchers from Imperial College London, UK, and their European partners, including Volvo Car Corporation, are developing a prototype material which can store and discharge electrical energy and which is also strong and lightweight enough to be used for car parts. In addition, the researchers believe the material, which has been patented by Imperial, could potentially be used for the casings of many everyday objects such as mobile phones and computers, so that they would not need a separate battery."

Great... Now you can be killed by the rapid discharge of the electrical energy in your car's battery from a fender bender or shopping cart scratch. (Although I would pay good money to see somebody attempt to "key my car" and get electrocuted in the process.) *Note to Carrie Underwood..."
