Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory A microgenerator powered by the M13 virus, which is harmless to humans. Scientists at the Energy Department's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory say they have created a virus that generates electricity . The
The answer lies in a compact data-logger installed on board, designed by the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits, Germany...Data logger includes an acceleration sensor, a GPS module, a micro-controller, an SD card and a WiFi interface.
These mini-medical machines send electrical signals to the heart to keep it beating in a healthy rhythm...That's the only way today to replace the batteries, which last five to 10 years. "The idea is to use ambient vibrations that are typically
NFC wireless memory ICs with a new 16-Kbit device that can also harvest enough energy to enable small electronic items using it to become completely battery-free electronic applications. Energy harvesting converts energy captured from the surrounding
The teams scavenging devices can capture this energy, convert it from AC to DC, and then store it in capacitors and batteries...Professor Manos Tentzeris and his team are using inkjet printers to combine sensors, antennas and energy-scavenging
Devices to be powered out of thin air Monday, July 11, 2011, 23:08 Washington: Researchers have discovered a way of harnessing energy from the air around us that could potentially power wireless sensors, microprocessors and communications chips. "
An innovative energy harvesting device designed and fabricated at Louisiana Tech University, has been named one of Ecofriend.org's Top 10 renewable energy technology breakthroughs of 2010. Long Que, assistant professor of electrical engineering at
Duke University , wears other hats, too including that of co-founder of two companies. These days, his interest is in a real hat now in prototype: a hard hat with a tiny microprocessor and beeper that sound a warning when dangerous equipment is
However, power harvesting technologies often fall short in terms of output as many of today's applications require higher power levels. Kaajakari's breakthrough uses a low-cost polymer transducer that has metalized surfaces for electrical contact.
Suddenly, you realise the phone’s battery is about to run out. It’s a very modern disaster, but one that could soon be at an end. Nokia, the mobile phone makers, are developing a self-charging phone that will use the kinetic energy created when a
