Humans are constantly on the go, so doesn’t it make sense to harness some of that kinetic energy? That’s what scientists from UCLA and the University of Connecticut asked, and the question eventually led to them developing an energy-storing device that can draw electrical power from the human body.
The biological supercapacitor is a protein-based battery-like device capable of extracting energy from the human body. A supercapacitor is a term used to describe a high-performance…
