These days we hate cables. At least I’m desperate when I see a bunch of cables near my laptop. Some of the devices we have, for example a printer, already have the wireless technology, but when it comes about laptops, this thing is a big minus.
We all hate when a tiny little yellow attention sign appears in the right corner of a Windows laptop and sais to plug-in your charger.. Well, Apple might take this stress out of our lives, by releasing a fuel-cell-powered MacBooks. Ofcourse at this moment this is just a concept, but if this will came true, will be something revolutionary.
Two of Apple’s patent appications surfaced this week at the US Patent and Trademark Office revealing that the Cupertino company is exploring ways to use fuel cell technology to power its future MacBooks and other computing devices. The use of fuel cells will allow for even smaller and lighter designs that the current battery-powered devices.
The titles of two patent applications were discovered by AppleInsider and they sound like this: “Fuel Cell Systems to Power a Portable Computing Device” and “Fuel Cell System Coupled to a Portable Computing Device.”
This new fuel cells could power a device like a MacBook “for days or even weeks” before having to refuel.
Funny or not, I’m sure you won’t be bothered to add some fuel into your laptop to have a week of wireless power, huh?
