Scientists Transform Bricks Into Supercapacitors

Researchers from Washington University St. Louis have developed a way to turn everyday construction bricks into supercapacitors capable of storing energy. The proof of the concept for transforming ordinary bricks that have been made the same way for thousands of years could hold applications in powering homes or even used as sensors. For example, the bricks could be wired to solar panels to store energy for times when homes lose power.
