Team from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory sets out to generate piezoelectric power from the M13 virus, commonly found in science labs.
Piezoelectric technology being studied at RMIT University in Australia might lead to laptops that can be recharged by typing alone.
Researchers show that materials called piezoelectrics, packaged onto flexible strips attached to animal hearts, can supply power for medical devices where batteries pose problems.
Researchers from Princeton and Caltech come up with a piezoelectric material that could harness body movements to charge consumer electronics--even pacemakers.
London outlet features a piezoelectric dance floor that uses quartz crystals and ceramics to turn gyrating energy into electricity.
University of Cambridge researchers print two types of retinal cells from adult rats and hope the development could one day contribute to a cure for some types of human blindness.
"Irrational Computing" has interlinked a series of untreated crystals and minerals to create a primitive signal processor.
Researchers say their experimental arrays sense pressure in the same range as the human fingertip, which could result in better bots and prosthetics.
We love the sound of laptops that can be charged by your typing, thanks to a genetically engineered virus.
It's a little ironic, but automotive traffic could be the next source of green energy. AB 306, a bill for a pilot program that will harness road vibration and convert it to energy, passed the Natural Resources Committee yesterday.
