As the world becomes more electrified, the race is on to build cheaper, longer-lasting, more energy-dense batteries. One of the most promising technologies in this space is the solid state battery, developed by an absolute legend in the battery world, one of the inventors of the lithium ion battery and recent Nobel Prize winner John B. Goodenough.

The thing is, so many technologies have been invented, forgotten and re-invented over thousands of years. Human arrogance and hubris leads the thought that "How could they have had such advanced things back then?" Just saying... On the subject of battery types, funny (and true) story about Nickel and Cadmium. Of course we all know the Ni-Cad battery. In the early 80's I worked at a company that made helicopters and some of the military style connectors were nickel plated and some of them were Cadmium plated. What could possibly go wrong? Yup, you guessed it. On Navy models there were some Nickel plated connectors mated with Cadmium plated connectors. Not only did this cause some interesting effects, but these mated connector pairs actually BONDED together! Uh, Whoops!

Damn. I do love my v6 but it's not like I'm opposed to progress. I'm just cautious about my enthusiasm. For one thing I'm more likely to convert my existing vehicle than to buy something that I don't understand and can't fix or modify myself... Yeah, i'm one of those guys that prefers Linux on my computer and root on my phone. I feel the same way about my truck, except amplified by the factor of how much more dangerous a vehicle is than a small box of electronics...

Love your videos! But, you’re doing yourself and your viewers a great disservice to completely reject a blatantly obvious theory regarding the existence of relatively advanced technology in ancient Egypt. It seems as though you’re trying to conform to the Egyptology consensus narrative by stating that only plausible use of electronic tech in was electroplating... when their are many examples of circular saws, lathes, and drill marks that can’t be explained otherwise. The cats out of the bag on Egyptologists futile attempts to keep history from being rewritten. Nothing about the dating of the Sphinx makes any sense if you’re using the chronological order accepted by the experts. That’s just one of many, many examples.

Just a thought about electric cars and how they can be recharged. I see Tesla’s have charging stations throughout the US now. I have seen videos where folks have taken over a 2000 mile trip. Why could you not build an intake valve in the front of the car to drive a small wind turbine therefore charging the battery as you drive. This may not completely elevate a charging station at some point but should drastically extend the range of the battery. Just a thought.

8:20 I might be misundertanding something, but that seems worse than what we've had for years. I know all my phones have worked in finnish winters (much colder than -20°C) and work in a Sauna (way hotter than 60°C). But even if that was the case, I think we should still make the change.

Leave it up to European conspiritards to completely misconstrue & misrepresent the ability of a random unused jar to serve as a pretty decent vessel for carrying random knickknacks when moving into your newly constructed Mesopotamian-era home with your recently-added-to-the-harem third wife. If only they had the foresight of inventing Tupperware with clearly marked labels back then... that woulda made for some seriously wealthy dudes, proper inventory & organizational skills culture as a standard defining feature. And who knows, maybe Saddam Hussein & Co would never had the chance to rise to tyrannical power. Rampant clutter would drive everyone completely insane. Anyone care to watch some Sumerian Marie Kondo episodes on NetFlix?!
