Wearable, washable microgrid uses the human body to sustainably power small electronics.

Source: Tech Briefs Nanoengineers have developed a wearable microgrid that harvests and stores energy from the human body to power small electronics. It consists of three main parts: sweat-powered biofuel cells, motion-powered devices called triboelectric generators, and energy-storing supercapacitors. All parts are flexible, washable, and can be screen-printed onto clothing. The wearable microgrid is built from […]
