Triboelectric effect

Triboelectric effect

Triboelectric Effect... This phenomenon creates significant amounts of electric power by simply rubbing or touching two different materials together. According to the inventor of this phenomenon, this discovery will offer a new way to power mobile devices by capturing the mechanical energy from walking vibration, passing cars or any multitude of sources.This phenomenon works in the following way:

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

A game-changing foldable patch of fabric wrapped around a person’s wrist can gather enough energy from arm movement to power small electronic devices, according to a new study by Sungkyunkwan University in South Korea.  Researchers say this advancement opens the door to clothing that can charge smart watches and cellphones while the wearer moves or walks around — a niche that could become increasingly popular with the proliferation of wearable technology.  Work It! Human-Powered Machines…
