Those mad scientists at Waseda University have already brought us walking and talking robots, but they now seem to have turned their attention to an endeavor less likely to storm out of the lab in a fit of rage, with Gizmag reporting that researchers at the University have developed a so-called "organic radical" battery that's flexible and transparent. In addition to being ridiculously easy to lose, the battery apparently takes only one minute to charge and can last over 1,000 cycles, although it's not clear exactly how much juice that translates to in real world use. It's also, of course, not clear when these see-through batts will ever make it out of the lab, although with transparent circuits and OLEDs also already in the works, it seems like it's only a matter of time before all our gadgets are invisible.
