A professor at the University of New Brunswick is aiming to provide power to a wide range of electronics, with the help of a stretchy laminate.
For the past three years, Anna Ignaszak, an associate professor of chemistry, has been working to develop the rechargeable coating, called a capacitor.
Similar to the battery, it's designed to deliver power to smaller everyday devices such as smart watches and smartphones.
"The capacitors I'm working on are very flexible," she said. "You can stretch them, you can bend them.
