A man old enough to be Mark Zuckerberg’s great-grandfather just unveiled energy storage technology that might save the planet.
Goodenough announced in early March that he and his team at the University of Texas at Austin had invented a glass-based battery that blows away the performance of every previous kind of battery – including lithium-ion batteries—which were invented in the 1980s by…him.
So right now Goodenough’s technology is powering your smartphone – laptop – electric toothbrush – Tesla and any other rechargeable electronic thing you own.
Lots of inventors claim they’re working on breakthrough types of batteries.
Goodenough is the only one who can also say he’s done it before.
