Origami from ancient art to paper battery

Origami from ancient art to paper battery

The nature has always been the followed model for bringing inventions into the reality. Now the ancient art of Japanese traditional art of origami inspired researchers from Binghampton University to create a small and strong device, a paper battery. The paper battery was developed by Seokheun Sean Choi one engineer researcher in the team and […]

Knitted clothing to store energy for smart devices

Collaboration between Drexel University and U.S. Naval Academy will conduct sooner to get more autonomy for sensors and other electronics already integrated into smart clothing. You can suppose what would be about when thinking of U.S. Naval Academy. Researchers discovered a way to embed activated carbon particles into different types of yarn to compile a […]

The trees as raw material for elastic high-capacity battery

I never thought that is possible to make elastic high-capacity battery from wood pulp. Now it is obviously.  A very good team of researchers from KTH Royal Swedish Institute of Technology and Stanford University made this come true. They used nanocellulose broken down from tree fibre to produce a kind of elastic foam designed to […]

Spherical solar energy collector made by Rawlemon

According to its vision, the German architect Andre Broessel said that the future will be not only green, but transparent. He and his Rawlemon company have a solution that can “squeeze more juice out of the sun”. He projected a spherical solar energy collector, a prototype called beta.ray. Its technology combines spherical geometry principles with […]

MIT energy initiative for an efficient solar cell in the future

Solar energy can fulfil us, as humanity, our long term energy needs. This could offer the cutting of greenhouse gas emissions by developing lower cost technologies and more effective deployment policy as is written in an MIT Energy Initiative (MITEI) study called The Future of Solar Energy. As Mr. Robert Armstrong –The Director of MITEI […]

Electromagnetic Harvester could charge very low-powered devices

As in the adage of Sir Antoine Lavoisier, “in nature nothing is lost, nothing is gained, everything transforms,” the energy is in a continue movement. Being surrounded by electromagnetic fields wherever you go, as normally, somebody thought it could be a good source of energy. There were many ideas of harvesting energy. This time Dennis […]

Fast Charging Time for Chevy Spark

The primarily inconvenience for an electric vehicle is the charge time. Now with the fast charging, a tremendous difference appeared. The Chevy spark is offering a fast charging option that will charge the vehicle in only 20 minutes. This mean it is more feasible to recharge each electric vehicle when is almost out of range. […]
