Scientists have developed a new device that will generate electricity from your hand or foot movements and transmit the generated electricity wirelessly.
A few years from now, when our phone’s charge is over, we will be able to charge our phone by moving our hands or feet, instead of looking for a charger and outlet. If you say, “Do you have more to produce,” no. The Clemson Nanomaterials Institute (CNI) researchers at Clemson University in the US state of South Carolina plan to produce the device soon.
In March 2017, the team assembled apparently primitive plastics and tape-made devices to generate electricity from the movements. When the two materials come together, voltage is created and voltage is turned on. Now it is possible to work wirelessly with a device made of materials such as ultra-fine graphene and teflon.
It has a square and flat surface and has a maximum capacity of 3.000 volts. The device that transmits energy to a distance of 3 meters when the voltage is turned on is shown as the best invention of the period. Electricity produced after the movement can be stored in batteries and used later.
Sai Sunil Mallineni, who runs the work, stated that the device will not only supply energy but can also be used as an actuated remote control at the same time. Mallineni is negotiating with new industrial partners to develop the application at this stage. The environmentally friendly device is thought to be actively used as a ‘button’ to open the garage door until the safety system is operated passively and wirelessly.
A lot of the people who need to find new energy sources are very happy. For what purpose can the device be used?
