Using Human Power To Run Micro-Scale Embedded Gadgets
The US Department of Defense talks about new developments in their attempts to channel thermal and kinetic energies.
As electronics continue to get smaller, it opens more possibilities for wearing microchips to enhance quality of life. One of the bigger obstacles was finding a viable power source. The solution, DARPA (the research division of the US Department of Defense) believes, lies with harnessing our body’s inherent electric current to power micro-scale embedded gadgets. Their Energy Starved Electronics program was founded in 2005 with the objective of finding legitimate ways to harness the human body as a power source.
