We Need a "Smart Battery"

Everyone is familiar with smartphones and other smart devices.

We need to create a vision, or industry standard, for high-performance
battery technologies, like Lithium Polymer, that includes a thin-film chip-set
that fully and automatically manages the health and use of LiPo's.

On the opposite side of this thin-film chip-set would be a 2-bit display that can
be seen through the shrink-wrap package that provides full information about the
battery's health and use. It might have a low-power Bluetooth capability to
communicate its status to the parent device. The chip-set and screen would be
powered by the battery itself, and it would “beep” very loudly at us when it needs
our attention; like when it need to be "fed."
