A crash course in changing the world.
We've all had our laptops on our lap and felt the burning sensation of the bottom of the computer heating up after being used for awhile. We've all had a 45 minute call where by the end of it, our phone is burning in our hands. This is because as electronics are used extensively, energy is converted from a potential state to a kinetic state to power the device. During this process, heat is lost, which is a normal byproduct of energy conversion and use, and that's why your devices get hot. The solution to this is to direct many resources to developing a lightweight, cheap material which retains heat instead of letting it escape, and then recycles the heat back in to the system as a sort of internal power source. This would incredibly space out the frequency which you would need to charge your device, lowering our personal energy costs and helping the environment. Although we would need an advancement in technology to reach this point, I believe the funds and resources are currently there to make it happen if we just allocate them efficiently.
