Researchers are using something called the triboelectric effect to create surprising amounts of electric power by touching two different materials together. This can provide a new way to power mobile devices such as smartphones by capturing the otherwise wasted energy from sources like walking, the wind blowing, vibration, or ocean waves.  Beyond generating power, the technology could also provide a new self-powered sensor, allowing detection of vibrations, water leaks – or even rain…

Taking advantage of the triboelectric effect, Professor Zhong Lin Wang and his team at Georgia Tech are harvesting wasted power with nanogenerators that capture mechanical #energy from sources ranging from walking to ocean waves. The #technology is also used in a new type of self-powered sensor capable of detecting very minute vibrations. [VIDEO] #physics
