Capaictor Batteries? I wonder how they solved the quick discharge properties of capacitors...
Just remember that your children and grandchildren will think these exciting to you innovations are just ho-hum stuff to them. In the same way prior generations were astounded by television, computers, and space flight to just name three. To my Grandfather airplanes were a wonder. Each generation takes the achievements of prior generations for granted.

I still have 33-1/3, 45, and 78 rpm records in the basement alongside the CDs.
