18-year-old’s invention can recharge a cell phone in 30 seconds:
A teenager from Saratoga, California took home one of the top prizes at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair late last week after showing off her invention, which can fully charge a cell phone in 30 seconds or less. Eesha Khare was given the Intel Foundation Young Scientist Award and a $50,000 prize for being runner-up in the competition, which was won by a 19-year-old who unveiled a new spin on self-driving car technology. Khare's battery technology requires a new component to be installed inside the phone battery itself, and Intel notes that it also has potential applications for car batteries.
