A team of researchers at the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) may have overcome one of the biggest hurdles facing wearable tech devices if they are to go mainstream — poor battery life. Even the biggest fans of Google Glass complain that the headset can only go roughly eight hours before the battery dies, and if the camera and video are in use, then that time falls drastically to one-to-two hours at best. Likewise, the first generation of Samsung smartwatches came in for criticism for having a useful life of less than a full day.
