Most of us think that batteries are made up of some metal chassis with liquid inside, but how about a battery made entirely out of plain copier paper? Sounds totally whacked out, but it is already been looked into with the idea of using carbon nanotubes on the paper itself to collect electric charge. The use of plain paper makes it more feasible and affordable when it comes to manufacturing larger devices. Literally paper-thin batteries in the future – now who would want to turn that down? Your electric vehicle out of juice? Just place a ream of paper underneath the hood and you’re good to go.
