Energy Harvesters in Clothes

In Germany, scientists at a research facility in Berlin dream of clothing that produces energy as we walk.

They have combined different nanomaterials into so-called energy harvesters, which have been designed to create energy by, for example, the movement of your feet.

According to electronic technologist Robert Hahn, they “are dealing with two important points: small forces and low frequencies.” He added that they “have tried to develop energy harvesters that are efficient and suitable for both.”

Therefore, scientists from a European Union research project have generated tiny, flexible and durable batteries that can be easily embedded into fabrics.

The batteries and energy harvesters are made with a combination of nanofibers and ceramic nanoparticles, among other components.

Scientists say their innovative products could be ready for the shops in less than five years.
