Watch: New prototype demos from Cuberg and Mallinda

Cuberg, led by Cohort Two innovator Richard Wang, and Mallinda, led by Cohort Two innovators Chris Kaffer and Philip Taynton, both have released videos of recent prototype demos.

Cuberg's video shows production and safety testing of their first prototype battery built in the widely used 18650 format—the same format used in the Tesla Model S and X—including a side-by-side nail puncture test with a commercial lithium ion battery demonstrating improved safety performance.

Mallinda's video shows a lab demonstration of rapid compression molding of pre-cured carbon fiber composites with less than 20-second latency, well under the automotive industry target of one minute.

Congratulations to both of these teams on their progress.
