Fiber Lithium Battery

MIT Researchers "have developed a rechargeable lithium-ion battery in the form of an ultra-long fiber that could be woven into fabrics." As proof of concept they have produced one fiber battery that is 140 meters long and only a few hundred microns thick. "[T]he material can also be used in 3D printing or custom-shape systems to create solid objects, such as casings that could provide both the structure of a device and its power source."
