Entrant Profile

Orlando Auciello

Location: Dallas, Texas United States


Company: Original Biomedical Implants


Profession: Scientist


Inspired by: To develop a new generation of LI-ion batteries with ≥ 10x longer life to power a new generation of defibrillator/pacemakers with ≥10x longer life before replacement (my wife defibrillator/pacemaker had to be replaced this year after only 6 years from time of implantation, as opposed to promised 9-10 year lifetime). Also, I would like to be able to recharge my cell pone battery at least after every 3-4 days, as opposed to having to charge it every night, as occur with current Li-ion batteries. Also, I would like to have an order of magnitude longer live LIB for my portable computer.
