Graphene batteries are here! Good to see a new battery technology hit the pro/consumer market. At the moment they're for high demand devices, but applied to smaller tech we could see faster, more efficient charging with high capacities and less heat.

Hobbyking are stocking them in the UK http://bit.ly/graphenebat

In the LiPo (or Li-ion) there are positive and negative electrodes, a separator (to keep the electrodes apart, but allow the ions to flow between them) and electrolyte. The previously used polymer separator was thicker and had a higher resistance than the new single-atom-thick graphene one. Now the Li-ions can flow between the electrodes more freely, with less resistance, there is less heat generated and the batteries can deliver and receive higher sustained currents. And apparently at the same price as the previous LiPos.

It was only last June (2015) that there were articles saying that scientists finally thought they'd figured out how to manufacture Graphene on a commercial scale, so I was surprised to see it in consumer batteries in early 2016. Pretty quick shift for battery tech.

Been a while since I've shared a quad video. This is exactly the type of shenanigans that got me excited about FPV quad flying in the first place! Really impressive flying from Mr Steele, must have felt amazing from inside the headset.

If only there was an Android conference next week where we could reveal the contents of that box that +Reto Meier can't leave alone... a conference where +Dave Burke and +Stephanie Cuthbertson were Keynoting and the Android Eng and Tools teams were giving a series of talks that are also live streamed on YouTube..... better get on that...

Wooosh, bang, ping, thump, thwack.... hey http://androiddevsummit.withgoogle.com
 
Android Studio 1.5 is now available to download from the stable release channel.

It’s focused on delivering more stability, with most of the enhancements being made under the hood. It adds new lint checks, the ability to use short names when code-completing custom views, and the memory profiler can now help you detect some of the most commonly known causes of leaked activities.

Check out this release video and find out more from our blog: http://goo.gl/AGvQ2R
