Wearable Microgrid Uses the Human Body to Power Small Gadgets

Wearable Microgrid Uses the Human Body to Power Small Gadgets

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.
