A keyless smart door lock
With the Otto system, the lock senses your phone and unlocks the door at the touch of a button. If the phone runs out of battery, there is a pin entry alternative. You can also assign limited-time pins to let housekeepers, delivery people, and dog walkers in at pre-specified times, but can revoke access outside those time windows.?https://www.meetotto.com/

Carbon Nanotube Yarn - Electricity Generation from Body Movement
Carbon nanotube yarn could help create battery-free wearables, powered entirely by their users' movement. Imagine being able to harness the energy produced during your morning jog and using it to power a music player or fitness tracker. Researchers have developed a special ultra-thin yarn created from carbon nanotubes. It efficiently converts mechanical energy into electrical energy. The yarn can be twisted into elastic-like coils that allow the threads to generate electricity when stretched. The energy from one piece of yarn can generate 250 watts per kilogram when a number of them are bound together and stretched 30 times per second. https://www.digitaltrends.com/cool-tech/carbon-nanotube-yarn/

Floating power plants
Imagine a power generation facility that is connected to the local power grid but floating on water. Floating power plants can be designed to be easily transportable and positioned in ports, on rivers, in deep oceans or even in sheltered coastal regions to enable power to remote locations and to regions during natural calamities. It?s something that the Chinese and the Japanese energy experts have pulled off recently. https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/floating-power-plants-look-future-energy-harihara-balasubramanian
