What Drives Battery Evolution?

Hi Innovators, I was reading about battery as one of the key barriers for mobile technology evolution. The capacity of battery has increased only 2 times in last 10 years whereas processing speed has gone 12 folds up. Here is a graph I came across showing Battery evolution with time.  I am just wondering, what is actually changing over time. Does it follow the TRIZ laws of technology evolution? At least two major trends I know

Structured Innovation Method for our Productivity Puzzle

We have been engaged in a java based development project where the development process is well defined and stream lined. We had already optimized the development process to a fairly optimal level and automated some key areas of development that gave us a good productivity boost. However the productivity levels achieved with all the process optimization and the automations we adopted were still not sufficient to meet the deadlines, we would be behind schedule by nearly a month if the same productivity was carried forward.

EMC Trends 2013 TRIZ overlay

As eleven EMC executives offer their predictions of which technologies and trends will transform cloud computing, Big Data and IT security the most in 2013, my aim is to find the underlying triz trend and possibly push one more evolution round. I assume a time frame of 1 year, basis is 8 TRIZ evolution trends applied to Mobile, applied on EMC executives predictions. Prediction quote (emphasis and few links are mine) My warped explanation of the underlying TRIZ trend What can happen next on this trend an intelligence-driven security model…will require multiple components including: a thorough understanding of risk, the use of agile controls based on pattern recognition and predictive analytics, and the use of big data analytics to give context to vast streams of data from numerous sources to produce timely, actionable information Law of completeness exemplified with the ENGINE understood as risks and risk related information originating across the board with a TRANSMISSION visualized as streams of information flowing to WORKING UNIT where actions are initiated from the information to contain risks and its effects and having some CONTROL on the above elements including analytics Law of uneven development on above will mean the 4 elements will evolve in different speeds.

Infinte Resources: A Drive for Evolution

If Evolution is continous then resources must be infinite. Othewise Evolution should stop at some economic juncture. Let’s take an example using a simple economic analysis. Let’s say If we are left with only 100 units of energy in universe. Making it simple , let’s say 100 units of petrol.  Here are few assumptions #Let’s say 40 units are required to covert to electric car. #Let’s say a car with electric motor delivers 20% higher fuel economy.

Cloud Computing: Analogy to Automotive

Read about Cloud Computing and learnt that it is a solution which seperates the function of computing (Heavy Lifting job) and Display. This is like combining / integrating CPU of all the computers to form a Cloud and providing user with only User interface connected to Cloud through internet. This reduces the Cost as user will only pay for services (ex: 3D modelling) being used with hourly based rates. Second , size of devises is reduced as it’s function is to only display information.
