A group of scientists and engineers working out of the University of Massachusetts Amherst have developed an extraordinary new radio technology that is designed to make it easier than ever to extend battery life of mobile devices to spectacular levels. The technology essentially works by allowing devices to share their battery power with other devices.

The technology, which is dubbed 'Braidio' or 'braid of radios', ensures that paired devices make use of regular battery energy levels except when juice is running low, at which point the smaller device begins outsourcing energy consumption to the device fitted with a bigger battery.

This groundbreaking invention could have a real impact on the design of technological gadgets going forward, with the ability to share and outsource energy having the potential to make smaller and lighter devices a real possibility.
