LG is mass-producing batteries that can curve, bend, and get wet

 Basically, we've got an awful lot of tech coming down with pipe with things like curved screens, not to mention designs that are actually flexible, like some forthcoming e-readers and watches and such. Having a curved battery is a necessity for this sort of tech, which is why LG Chem will be mass-producing them next month. And that's the big news here: we're not talking about something that's buried in an underground lab somewhere, or even a prototype: these batteries are going into production, which means they'll be immediately available for integration into the next generation of devices.
