LG for Near-field Communication Capability for home appliances

LG is going hard at the CES 2013 with its “touch the smart life” tag line. LG is aiming to make all its electronic products be more smart and interactive with the users at home or people on the go. The company is improving all their ‘intelligent’ appliances by integrating them with Near-field Communication Capabilities (NFC). One can use their Smartphones to scan the NFC tag on any of LG devices and connect to it. NFC will sync with the device / appliance (like oven, washing machine and refrigerator) and then remotely controlled.  With NFC, maintenance requirement of washing machine, cleaning up the house with robotic vacuum or check what is available in the fridge are some of the tasks which can be done remotely  without any hassle once the syncing is complete.

There is a resistance to embrace the smart appliance by consumers as connecting these devices / appliances appears to be rocket science to them, Scott Ahn, LG’s Chief Technology Officer, had stated during a press conference. He also alluded to the price factor being one of the reasons but did not specify the price band of NFC enabled appliances which are likely to hit the market this year.

New Micro battery, power packed for high performance

For a size of a few millimetres, the new micro-batteries are powerful enough to jump start a car battery and then quickly charge the cell phone. Researchers from the University of Illinois have developed the micro batteries which can be used to drive compact electronic devices and new applications for radio communications. The micro batteries are so good that they can even out power the super capacitors. The results were published in ‘Nature Communications’ in the April 16 issue. The micro batteries have energy and power and with the researchers tweaking the structure of the micro batteries a little bit, its use can be for wide range applications.

The high performance of the micro battery is based on its 3-dimensional micro-structure. Based on the design of fast charging cathode by Professor Paul Braun’s group, researchers developed the matching anode and integrated it with the fast charging cathode at a micro-scale and made a complete battery with high performance. These batteries cou…
