Body heat-harvesting wearable ups electricity generation efficiency
13Sep

NCSU researchers have developed wearables that harvest body heat and turn it into electricity

The human body requires a lot of energy to run, but efforts are being made to claim some of that back to power electronic devices. Kinetic energy, created from movement, has been harnessed to charge batteries in the battlefield, and thermoelectric generators (TEG), which generate electricity from body heat, have powered flashlights and wearable devices. Now researchers at North Carolina State University (NCSU) have created a new wearable prototype that’s lightweight, comfortable and much more efficient than existing TEGs.
