Nanotech capacitors

Another interesting tech idea - I hope this one proves to be viable commercially.

Nanotech promises the first viable alternative to batteries in 200 years

February 14, 2006
Almost everything we use requires electrical storage via a battery - computers, cell phones, cars, personal entertainment devices and much more – and as compelling functionality has increased in the digital age, so too has our reliance on the traditional battery which has changed little since it was developed by Alessandro Volta in 1800.

Now, work at MIT's Laboratory for Electromagnetic and Electronic Systems (LEES) holds the promise of the first technologically significant and economically viable alternative to conventional batteries in more than 200 years.
