    Canon's going green: fuel cells in DSLRs

    I’ve never really had a problem with my Rebel’s battery life — in fact, it’s excellent. I guess that’s no reason to stop trying to improve it, however, and Canon is working on doing just that. Of course, they’re not an energy research company. But MTI Micro is, and they just happened to announce a deal with a “global Japanese developer of digital… Read More

    Sony demos tiny fuel cell with 14-hour charge

    I hate batteries, but I love fuel cells. At some point in the near future the technology will do as promised, giving us hours of clean energy for our portable gear. Sadly, they’re still too big to be practical, but Sony’s working on the problem, and has this nifty palm-sized fuel cell to show for it. It’s a methanol-based unit, and can provide up to 14 hours of charge for a… Read More

  • Fuel cell-powered Lifecar has 250 mile range: 0-60 in seven seconds

    [photopress:lifecar.jpg,full,center] A hydrogen-powered sports car will be unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show that begins on Thursday that’s expected to go from 0-60 mph in seven seconds. (It tops out at about 90 mph.) The car, called the Lifecar and based on the Morgan Aero-8 (look at me, talking like I know anything about cars), has a range of 250 miles. It’s being touted as a… Read More

  • Hands on with Horizon fuel cells

    Hands on with Horizon fuel cells

    Ready to power your iPod with clean, delicious hydrogen? I got a chance to see Horizon fuel cell technologies up close yesterday and I’m pleased to report that soon we all will be using our pent up atoms to power iPods, toy cars, and unmanned assault vehicles. Most of the cells are fairly bulky but they showed a small cell using a hydrogen canister the size of a AA battery that they designed… Read More

  • Sony's Sugar Fuel Cell: Tasty, Big Electricity

    Presumably the first two images you see in this video are the battery and some sugar and presumably you Sony or whoever made this video has no taste in music. Regardless, looks like it could be a useful addition to the future battery arsenal and it presumably won’t explode like most Sony batteries. HAR! via Engadget Read More

  • ENV Fuel Cell Bikes

    Mobile Magazine reports that Discovery has gotten some video of those ENV fuel cell bikes in action. The bikes are notable for its emission neutral technology that emits only water. It’s cool, but ultimately just a masturbatory diversion. Hydrogen fuel cells are too costly and too uncommon to possibly hope to meet the demands of consumers anytime soon. But check out the video for some hot… Read More

    Jadoo Goes to Space

    Jadoo Power Systems announced today that it has received a contract to develop advanced fuel canisters for use with hydrogen fuel cells. Using a proprietary digital interface technology called N-Stor, the new canisters can utilize a chemical hydride derived from ammonia borane. This process drastically reduces the weight of the new canisters, making it ideal for space objectives. Jadoo Read More
