+ - MIT's Nano Storage Could Replace Hybrid Batteries->

Submitted by mattnyc99
mattnyc99 (1008511) writes "We looked at Popular Mechanics' reporting from MIT last week but missed the coolest breakthrough of all, something scientists have been working on quietly as Detroit spends money elsewhere: the Lab for Electromagnetic and Electronic Systems has been doing some mega-efficient work with ultracapacitors, which store drastically less energy than a battery but have essentially none of the drawbacks—especially via carbon nanotube arrays. Automotive experts say the new research is enough to start replacing batteries in hybrid cars, and plug-in vehicles might not be far behind. From the scientist who thinks ultracpacitors are potential competitors for the pack in his Toyota Prius: "I try to contain myself, because it hasn't been proven yet, but it could be a real paradigm change.""

It is masked but always present. I don't know who built to it. It came before the first kernel.
