Fiber Nanogenerators power up our future clothing

On a fairly regular basis researchers publish new findings around power generating textiles, a topic highly interesting for the wearable electronic community. This time engineers at the University of California, Berkeley, created energy generating nanofibers that could one day be woven into textiles. The nano-sized generators work on the ‘piezoelectric’ principle, converting kinetic energy through…
