    Battery-less cell phone: Could this be the future of technology?

    Cell phones are a huge part of society as they continue to evolve becoming more advanced with every new release. Recently, the main focus on technology revolves around the release of the new Apple iPhone 8, 8 Plus, and iPhone X. However, journalist John Biggs draws attention on something potentially bigger than any cell phone on the market today. Biggs writes about a cell phone created by Vamsi Talla that operates without the use of a battery in his article on TechCrunch titled “This battery-free cellphone runs on light and radio waves”.

    This cell phone potentially will draw power from surrounding sunlight or RF waves and can make a call by modifying and then bouncing waves back to the base station. The battery-less phone only posses three microwatts of power which is ten-thousand time less than the typical smartphones we use today (Biggs). Biggs states that this type of affordable technology could even make an impact in developing worlds.

    Personally, I would love to see a future where charging our cell phones is a thing of the past. Coming from a person who uses their phone for countless features such as text messaging, phone calls, music, maps, and internet, a phone that never dies sounds ideal. . This article brings a lot of excitement toward the advancement of cell phone technology and I hope to see battery-less phones in our future.
