Smart Clothes Generate Electricity

Interesting discovery and development that is occurring in the Geogia Institute of technology, where a team of researchers led by Zhong Lin Wang, are taking steps to stop creating fibers and from them clothes that can recharge our gadgets or more generally, generate electricity almost from scratch.

The principle is similar to the watches that are loaded only by grace of movement. In this case they are specially coated Nano-fibers so they produce tiny electrical impulses with the friction. This may come from what we least we think, as the sound waves, air, vibrations or even the simple beating of our heart. Do you imagine go recharging mobile phone we carry in the pocket with help of the fibers of our shirt which covers the part of the? heart?

Apart from the field of clothing, this development will also help create new sources of clean and alternative energy, as curtains, blinds or other elements exposed to wind or simply the sound waves, may generate, at the moment small scale, energy for a world that surrounds most needed it, but above all use increasingly more rational of the same. That start simply by unplugging power e.g. boots when we don’t have the mobile phone connected.

At the moment the main drawback of these fibers is that the coverage of zinc oxide that lead, they may not get wet and therefore washing, but I think that it is a lesser evil.
