Human energy powering small devices

post-image

There’s been research to date on kinetic energy, using human gait as an identity fingerprint and others for new battery like contraptions and more. As a side note, this Editor hopes we skip the Matrix phase above!

The latest US researchers are trying to find ways for our human body heat and energy to power wearable devices. If they succeed, what environmental & sustainable benefits could we see? No more pesky 6month battery lives? If our energy and movement could be distinct, perhaps it is a bio marker for identity and more?
