The Kinetic Energy Cell. Get ready to shake yer battery. An interesting Aussie tech which apparently may lead to batteries which generate power from vibrations, such as you’d find in a moving vehicle or even people. So in the future we could dance or jog our way to a re-charge. Picturing a commuter train carriage full of jiggling suits. Oh yes! More here.
A renewable energy device that captures vibration to produce electricity looks set to replace or compliment small conventional batteries for a range of every day applications and enable the reliable powering of new technologies. The Kinetic Energy Cell is a micro renewable energy source able to generate electricity from vibration or motion such as from cars, trucks and even people. This means that so long as there is access to movement or vibration the cell produces energy.
