Georgia Tech Researchers Create Self-Charging Battery

Researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, Georgia have created a self-charging battery that could end drained battery woes in the future. Their study, whose complete name is “Hybridizing Energy Conversion and Storage in a Mechanical-to-Electrochemical Process for Self-Charging Power Cell” was published in the journal Nano Letters. It essentially looks into creating

Future Tech: Harvesting energy through your footwear

A pair of mechanical engineers from University of Wisconsin in Madison have designed a system to harvest some of the energy that is lost while we walk.    Ashley Taylor and Tom Krupenkin, authors of “Reverse electrowetting as a new approach to high-power energy harvesting” published here on August 23, 2011;  have founded InStep NanoPower in
