Researchers Create Transparent Battery For Transparent iPhone [Video]

Remember how long you had to wait for a white iPhone? Well a transparent iPhone is probably many, many years away, if even possible, but one researcher has gotten a step closer by creating a lithium-ion battery that seems invisible.

The transparent battery features overlapped electrodes that make the battery invisible to the naked eye. Developers Yi Cui and Yuan Yang created the battery at Stanford and say they would like to talk to Steve Jobs about creating a transparent iPhone some day.

"I want to talk to Steve Jobs about this. I want a transparent iPhone," Yi Cui told his college newspaper.

The invisible lithium-ion battery packs about half the power of the normal lithium-ion batteries that power most cell phones today. Check out the video below for more.
