Power Paper batteries can be used in so-called smart cards — plastic cards that contain microprocessor chips. Current smart cards require a separate bulky card reader to display the information stored on the cards' chips. But with a flexible battery, smart-card makers could soon include a tiny display screen on the card itself that would allow users easy access to that account data.Power Paper even envisions that its flexible battery designs can be used to help secure airports and passengers. Luggage tags and airline tickets could be printed with tiny radio antennas and circuitry — powered by the company's battery — to contain passenger data. Checkpoints equipped with radio receivers would then be able to track passengers and baggage as they move through the airport.Sweet Music Soon?But for that to happen, Power Paper is working with printing partners to further develop the technology and iron out costs.
