From battery life to pure life, new research shows we're getting closer to a future where important implanted and wearable health devices could run on power collected from our own organs.
A prototype cardiac energy harvester out of the University of Michigan could one day harness the beating of a heart to power a pacemaker.
Team from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory sets out to generate piezoelectric power from the M13 virus, commonly found in science labs.
We love the sound of laptops that can be charged by your typing, thanks to a genetically engineered virus.
A plastic microbelt that vibrates when passed by low-speed airflow could lead to a new generation of microscale biomedical devices that are powered by human breath.
Piezoelectric technology being studied at RMIT University in Australia might lead to laptops that can be recharged by typing alone.
Imagine a world where the battery on your favorite device doesn't get low anymore. Researchers in Australia may have finally found the key to an everlasting battery.
Research could pave the way for battery-free gadgets that harness sound waves for power.
