Canon Developing Fuel Cells for Printers & Cameras

Canon has developed tiny fuel cells that hopefully would replace conventional batteries as the only power for digital cameras and printers in three years.

Fuel-cell technology mixes hydrogen and oxygen to generate electricity and is considered a promising replacement for today’s lithium-ion batteries, which are widely used to power a range of mobile products from notebook PCs to mobile phones.

Moreover, Canon is also developing organic light-emitting diode (OLED) displays to replace the liquid crystal displays (LCD) it buys from other firms for use in its cameras and printers.
