What happened to the revolutionary technologies?

There’s an odd micro-trend playing out via news media and press releases that all but insists that society is perpetually on the cusp of a battery revolution. In 2006, MIT hailed a groundbreaking device that could store as much energy as a conventional battery while recharging in seconds an infinite number of times.

Hemp May Beat Graphene as Ideal Supercapacitor Material

As hemp makes a comeback in the U.S. after a decades-long ban on its cultivation, scientists are reporting that fibers from the plant can pack as much energy and power as graphene, long-touted as the model material for supercapacitors.
