This tiny generator can power wearable devices using your body heat

Body heat-absorbing generators made from inorganic materials like this have higher power output than ones made from organic substances, making them the better choice. Problem is, they’re also typically larger and more rigid. This creation addresses both issues, and the glass fabric even minimizes heat loss and maximizes output, as discussed in the paper the institute published recently. Obviously, it’ll take a long time before we see this design in real world devices, if we even see it at all. The team believes, however, that this generator doesn’t only have a future in wearables, it could also be used in cars, factories, airplanes and other vehicles.
