Most of us have done science projects in high school. My best project was a catapult that could launch cans of soda several hundred yards. But I was just reconstructing a weapon that was invented thousands of years ago in ancient Greece. On the other hand 18 year old Eesha Khare invented a tiny supercapacitor that can fit inside the batteries of most cell phones that can fully charge the battery in as quickly as twenty seconds. Khare also envisions that the supercapacitor can be applied to larger batteries like those for electric cars. This invention won her the Intel Foundation Young Scientist Award and $50,000 from Intel and I suspect a patent is being filed for it right now. Hopefully this invention is being fast-tracked for commercial use and the days where waiting even minutes for our mobile electronics to charge will be coming to an end.
