myFC showcases prototype smartphone charged by integrated fuel cell
myFC has reached another milestone in its development towards integration of fuel cells in smartphones. Today, myFC showcases a fully functional prototype of a commercial Android smartphone integrating myFC’s LAMINA fuel cell.
As part of its revised strategy, announced in April 2018, myFC is intensifying its efforts within fuel cell integration into smartphones. The development has now reached an important milestone, as a fully functional smartphone integrating myFC’s LAMINA fuel cell was showcased, enabling myFC’s fuel cell to deliver power on-the-go in a commercial Android smartphone.
“We can now show the simplicity and elegance of powering our smartphones on-the-go. Our prototype includes a graphical user interface and smart interaction with the end user. Using this prototype, we can intensify discussions with leading smartphone manufacturers to show the potential of our technology. Our offering enables smartphone manufacturers to step forward and allow consumers to charge their smartphones wherever and whenever they wish,” says Sebastian Weber, Chief Technology Integration Officer at myFC.
The integration team at myFC, led by Weber, has developed the prototype based on a commercial smartphone model that provides built-in support for adding new hardware and software. The prototype has been developed without collaboration with the smartphone manufacturer, and will be used as a reference design when promoting myFC’s technology to smartphone manufacturers.
myFC’s mobile integration development addresses two major needs: Our increasing dependency on our smartphones to manage our everyday lives, such as showing valid tickets when traveling and making payments in stores without fear of running out of power; as well as smartphone manufacturers’ need to differentiate their products on a highly competitive market.
Coming steps in the development efforts are planned to include improved mechanical integration, system performance, and end-user interaction, as well as further developing the fuel ecosystem.
