Batteries are heavy and eventually become depleted of energy. This depletion of batteries sets limitations on the capacity to which smart App programs are developed, by requiring them to accommodate for low energy usage in their design. Our society is for the most part battery driven. Given the amount of devices we have on the go today and the need for alternative energy, it looks like we are instead getting more comfortable with batteries than innovating their purpose - mobile energy.
With electromagnetic radiation readily available everywhere, this technology is to serve beyond the concept of storage and transition into sustainable, abundant, ever present energy.
