World's First Elastic Power Cables Roboden


Here comes another new technology, I haven't imagine if on the future almost all the power cables can be stretched. A Japanese company has developed some stretchable power cables. With this innovation now you can stretch the power cables as far as you want without worrying about the cable will broken off , There will be no more short cable problems for your gadget.

Asahi Kasei Fibers has introduced the Roboden, an elastic electrical cable. It’s made out of spandex, which is the same fabric used in a lot of athletic gear, and which a lot of people whose bodies most people really don’t want to see completely outlined wear.

The cable is meant to be used mainly for robotics. Since robots need to have some freedom of movement, engineers usually leave some slack in the cables. But this cable allows the cable to be as tight or as loose as necessary. It will also allow people to build human-like robots that are more realistic and soft, which might help them avoid going deep into the Uncanny Valley.

Asahi Kasei is also planning to implement the technology in other cables, such as USB. This would be an obvious boon for portable electronics, given the abuse they (and their cables) often take. Let's hope that in the future the USB cable or even HDMI cables will use this kind of elastic fabrics from Asahi Kasei Fibers.
