Out of the Blue

I may be losing out in my literal cold war with MrsBlue over grilling rights. You may recall I am attempting a strike to gain the right to put my man-stove on the deck for general convenience, but in particular to be more accommodating in the winter. She's holding firm on her resolve, and I may be the first one to blink on this and resume using the grill where it is before the spring breaks. I feel so weak.

Those two science stories are directly related. Military exo and endo skeletons are restricted by energy requirements. There's just no battery powerful enough to drive them.

i read an article not too long ago about a new graphene based battery (think chicken wire, but made up of carbon atoms) that could power an LED for 5 minutes and took 5 seconds to charge. this from a graphene sheet just a few atoms thick. the technology is still embryonic, but that's the future of portable power right there.
