On the crowded CES floor a company called Nexiom caught our eye, and as it turns out, we had caught theirs: "Ah, Core77!" exclaimed the rep, spotting our badge. "We recruited our designers off of your Design Directory." Hong-Kong-based Nexiom had spent years developing an interesting little technology, and hired ID'ers we'd listed to integrate it into a consumer-friendly product design.
We'll start with what Nexiom developed, a super-flat battery they're calling the Power Slate.
They're ridiculously thin, about the same thickness as a USB connection.
Along the X/Y axes, their 650 model is about the size of an iPad Mini, while their larger 1300 is roughly the size of a binder. And as you can see, there are holes in the side so that they can actually be carried that way.
The surfaces of the batteries can be printed with any pattern you'd like.
So, any guesses on what the product design wrapped around these batteries is?
