New Delhi: Ever thought of a walking mobile charger? Here is some good news as researchers have developed a battery that can harness the energy of movements to charge electronic devices like mobile phones.
The device developed by researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the two centimetre wide battery turns human movement into power for charging electronic devices, like smartphones and tablets while it is in your pocket.
The device works on the principle known as the thermally regenerative electrochemical cycle in which a phone is charged by harvesting energy from body heat.
Further, researchers hope to be able to convert the technology to real, practical uses when they get better materials and system designs.
