MIT researchers came up with an ingenious concept for a liquid battery. Constructed as an hourglass, the battery relies on gravity to generate energy #objectmagic
Liquid batteries aren’t unheard of. In fact, in the 70s, scientists first used liquid materials for positive and negative electrodes, separating them by a membrane. Now, MIT scientists developed a different design for them, one that uses gravity as a pump mechanism.
Like an hourglass, the moment you tilt the battery, the particle slurry goes from one end to the other via a channel. Thus, it produces energy at a specific rate.
If the device goes beyond prototype phase, it could make a difference in the green energy industry.
