5 Tech Briefs That Rethink How to Power Up Electronics
From thermoelectric fabrics to microbes, today’s engineers are developing innovative ways to power up their electronics.
Researchers from University of Massachusetts Amherst are looking for energy potential from proteins and biomaterials. A team from the University of Michigan wants an entire “charging room” (and magnets!) to keep your lights on and devices at 100 percent.
Watch this video to see five standout power-up approaches featured in our March 2022 issue of Tech Briefs.
Tech Briefs highlighted in this video:
- Self-Sustaining, Intelligent Electronic Microsystems from “Green” Material
- Charging Room System Provides Electricity Over the Air
- Nanothin Piezoelectrics for Self-Powered Electronics
