Soon, charge your smartphone through a simple swipe!


You may soon be able to charge your smartphones using the motion of a swipe, thanks to a new device designed by scientists that could harvest unused mechanical energy from wind, ocean waves and human motion. The new concept in energy harvesting could capture energy that is currently mostly wasted due to its characteristic low frequency and use it to power next-generation electronic devices.

Scientists at Pennsylvania State University in the US designed a mechanical energy transducer based on flexible organic ionic diodes that points towards a new direction in scalable energy harvesting of unused mechanical energy in the environment, including wind, ocean waves and human motion. Devices to harvest ambient mechanical energy to convert to electricity are widely used to power wearable electronics, biomedical devices and the so-called Internet of Things (IoT) – everyday objects that wirelessly connect to the internet.
