Vibration Energy Cells Could Replace Toxic Batteries
An alternative power source harnesses kinetic energy.
Researchers are increasingly looking to build systems that harness energy from vibrations, as PSFK had reported earlier this year. Now, a Japanese electronics firm, Brother Industries, has developed Vibration Energy Cells that generate power after a vigorous shake. These cells are embedded with a coil, magnet and condenser to charge electricity and can be used to power any common battery powered device.
