Amazing new technology powers wearable devices with our own sweat.

Tuesday, September 26, 2017

A team of engineers from the University of California, San Diego has developed remarkable stretchable power cells that take energy from your own sweat and power electronics, like LEDs and even Bluetooth radios!
For a field that has been struggling to come up with devices that are powerful enough and stretchable enough, these epidermal biofuel cells are a major breakthrough. The breakthrough was achieved thanks to a combination of extremely clever chemistry, highly advanced materials and electronic interfaces. This combination let them build a highly stretchable, electronic foundation using lithography and screen-printing to manufacture 3D carbon nanotube-based cathode and anode arrays.
The biofuel cells are equipped with an enzyme that oxidizes the lactic acid present in human sweat to generate current. This turns the sweat into a source of power. Because the concentration of lactic acid in a person's sweat gets diluted over time, the team is exploring a way to store the energy produced while the concentration of lactate is high enough and then release it gradually.So future work is needed before this technology can be considered a full success.

What others say about John's Electric Service

What a pleasure it was dealing with Aubrey of John's electric! We had a breaker that would not reset. Aubrey arrived at our house at exactly the time he said he would. He had the problem diagnosed in under a minute and had us back to normal with all of our garage outlets in under 5 minutes. I know that all service calls can't go that quickly, but he sure found the problem right away and got it fixed immediately. I would strongly recommend this company.

Aubrey did an excellent job with moving our electrical main service. He coordinated with Alabama Power and the Hoover inspectors and everyone was there when they should be. He knew that we needed a special disconnect and ordered the right one. We gave him a key and trusted him to be in and out of the house and yard when he needed to. He kept us informed, did a quality job and went over and above to come out to check on things for us after hours one evening and teach us a few things. Reasonable price as well. A true professional and I will recommend him again.
