In recent years, lithium-ion batteries that power everything from smartphones to electric vehicles have seen considerable improvements in their safety and energy density (a measure of how much power they pack in per pound). But progress is slowing, and it seems likely that we will need to switch to novel battery designs if we want to banish the gas-powered car from the history books.
One company thinks 3D printing holds the answer. Solid-state batteries, which replace the liquid electrolyte in today’s cells with a solid one, are some of the most promising candidates. These batteries could be more energy dense, safer, and faster charging than today’s technology—but finding a way to make them commercially viable is challenging.
One company, Sakuu, has been working on a solution: 3D printing to create electrodes for solid-state batteries. Conventional manufacturing methods are not well suited to making these complex structures so 3D printing could be a game changer.
Sakuu’s Swift Print™ technology uses a layer-by-layer process to print solid-state battery cells with an anode made of copper nanoparticles and a cathode made of vanadium dioxide. This combination of materials enables the batteries to pack in more power than existing lithium-ion batteries while also being safer (because there’s no liquid electrolyte that could leak or catch fire) and faster charging (because the ions can move more quickly through the solid electrolyte).
Solid-state batteries are the future of energy storage, and Sakuu is leading the way with its Swift Print™ technology. This game-changing technology has the potential to double the capacity of current lithium-ion batteries, making electric vehicles, e-mobility, and a wide range of other applications possible. With Sakuu’s help, the sky’s the limit for what we can power with clean, renewable energy.
Sakuu Corporation is on the cutting edge of battery technology with its Swift Print™ 3D printing process. This innovative technology has the potential to double the capacity of current lithium-ion batteries, making them safer, faster charging, and more energy dense. Sakuu is leading the way in solid-state battery development, paving the way for a clean, renewable energy future.

Christian is a futurist and trendwatcher who speaks about the impact of exponential technologies like AI on organizations, people, and talents. Christian tailors his presentations to your audience's specific industries and needs.
Embracing the advancements of technology and AI can enhance our humanity. We can focus on developing our unique talents and skills by automating mundane tasks and freeing up our time. As humans, we can adapt and learn, allowing us to evolve and stay relevant in a rapidly changing world constantly.
Organizations will need to be more fluid, dynamic, and adaptable: the ability to change and adjust in response to new situations and environments. We are on the cusp of a new era of organizations, ones that are more fluid and agile and which behave like swarms we see in nature.
In the future, 3D printing and generative design will allow for products to be designed in a more decentralized manner, and production will take place closer to the customer and fully on-demand. 3D printing technology will also allow for more customization and personalization of products.
The agricultural industry is ripe for disruption. Robotics, AI, and IoT are all technologies that have the potential to radically transform the way we grow food. In combination with vertical farming, these technologies could increase the efficiency and quality of agricultural products.
A human-centered society is one that puts people first and where technology is used to unite and empower people. It is a society that values biological life and dignity above all else. It is a society that recognizes the importance of human relationships and works to strengthen them. In a human-centered society, all members of the community are valued and treated with respect.
The future of healthcare is here. New technologies like AI, IoT, big data, and smart sensors make it possible to become the CEO of your own health. Imagine that your phone can listen to your voice and AI algorithms can detect small nuances in the tone of your voice that indicate specific diseases.
