Research by the Georgia Institute of Technology may lead to the development of body-powered gadgets, Technology Review reports. A nano generator developed by researchers at GA Tech could someday be used to create to medical implants and sensors powered by heartbeats or even breathing. The movement caused by breathing or even the heart beating could flex special nanowires to create electricity and that power could be used to run electronics in or on the body.
