New research shows how technology can make our body technology.
But it is time that you work as a research team of bio-engineers in Purdue University, under the leadership of Wenzhou Wu, developing a technology that is both self-sustainable power voltage for both consumer and military technologies. Bio-mechanical energy generated by the form will change. .
In a recent article in Journal A of Materials Chemistry, Woo said: “Our technology will enable wearable electronics to take the otherwise wasted energy and convert it into energy which is used in military equipment and consumer applications. Power and control electronic devices and devices to be known. Our technology allows synergy engineering of TENG components at materials, structural and output levels. ”
The team believes that there is a variety of applications in technology, from which: Interface powering, self-monitoring health technology, body sensor, user interface and telecommunications between military light-scene systems.
Already with patent partner – Purdue’s Office of Technology commercialization – The team is now looking for financial partners who are in big vision to withdraw their technology.
The research platform IDTechEX estimates that the team’s triobillectric energy harvesting transducer can turn into a $ 480 million market by 2028.
So how does it work?
The device has a layer of liquid metal engraved in silicon and is lined between two ecoflex sheets. It responds to your body for discharge of mechanical energy and converts it into a permanent voltage for the power of the equipment.
The research team showed that the result of a test run involving the application of LMI-TENG driven wireless media control system on self-powered personal interfaces.
As the Team Journal of Material Chemistry A says: “The device architecture and design scheme presented here provides a promising solution for achieving self-powered human-integrated technologies.”
What will the future look like?
The integration of self-sustainable cutting technologies in the domestic markets can be conceived for the transformative role in our understanding of human / technology relations. We believe that nearly decades before the survival of science-fi films, it was only wildly imagined: the end of human life as we know it and cyber-like man-machines in the morning.
The video-fi movie, ironically, where did the initial motivation of developing Purdue’s team come from? But perhaps there will be a great change in the elimination of human species, which many scientists believe would be necessary to save the planet?
Living with the electricity generating plant itself, I would not mind cleaner air and cheap utility costs. Of course, the image of humans being cut for electricity can swing from slavery scenes of slaves, which generate electricity for the rich of new decentralized global universe of millennials who liberate their own independent independent sects.
The way in which these new technological innovations go to their best, we begin to visualize the future, as we think our present is quickly becoming a past for Woo and other sophisticated researchers around the world.
