"The Next Big Thing" In Mobile Technology

Inventor of the Cell Phone Says This Is the Next Big Thing

Marty Cooper, who built the first handheld cell phone, says his invention has a glaring flaw: You have to keep charging its battery

[Blogger's note: I worked for a company founded by Marty Cooper, who is considered to be the father of the cell phone and is also the one who made the first handheld cellular phone call in public (between Chicago and Washington, D.C.). His work spawned many business ideas and communications companies.]
"Keeping your phone charger around is a real annoyance," Cooper told CNNMoney in an interview. "And I think it's going to be an increasing problem."
Ensuring that your phone doesn't run out of juice is enough of a pain. But imagine the not-too-distant future when our bodies are covered with different connected devices -- watches, glasses and clothing -- all of which will need to be charged.
"You won't want to take all them off and plug them in," Cooper said. "That's why they ought to be charging all the time."
