"Department of Energy's Argonne National Laboratory has discovered that nanotubes composed of titanium dioxide can switch their phase as a battery is cycled, gradually boosting their operational capacity."
Instead of companies making more awesome softwares, hardware needs to improve.
1. Long lasting batteries.
2. Durable or disposable hardware.
3. Green hardware.
4. Breakfree or easily repairable gadgets.
5. Ease of design.
6. Feather weight.
Any company improving upon the above physical features of their product will gain advantage in the mechanical and gadget market.
I wish technology could improve a lot. Because a lot is needed. On road electric cars or some other sort of cars are one of them.
