1.Nanogenerator Technology - Keep a smartwatch charged with your body heat!
Nanogenerator technology provides for the possibility of smart wearables that never need to be charged. With the heat of the body supplying the power for such devices, you’ll never have to think about where you’re getting your next charge again.
2.All-Natural Fuel - A team of scientists have created a toilet that generates electricity from urine! Its design incorporates fuel cells containing bacteria which break down the liquid waste to sustain themselves and generate electricity.
Maybe it sounds a bit gross to us today, but might our future cities be powered by pee?
3.New Nuclear Innovations - Another team of experts have designed a man-made diamond which, when exposed to radiation, generates an electrical current. Future uses of this technology may include using nuclear waste itself for energy, preventing power crises and solving issues related to safe disposal of nuclear by product.
Which of these technologies are you most interested in? What do you think the next ten years has in store for battery technology? Let’s discuss!
