Energy Harvesting for Electronic Devices: Latest Situation

Energy Harvesting for Electronic Devices: Latest Situation

The characteristics of energy harvesting on or near electronic devices are usually: Intermittent but lasts longer than a primary battery. Virtually maintenance-free: fit and forget. No pollution at point of creation of electricity and at point of use of this electricity which is usually nearby. Produces 0.1 microwatts to 10W when functioning. Renewable energy including from human or animal. EH electricity usually needs to be stored and…

3D Printed Soft, Rubbery Brain Implants

3D Printed Soft, Rubbery Brain Implants

Engineers are working on developing soft, flexible neural implants that can gently conform to the brain's contours and monitor activity over longer periods, without aggravating surrounding tissue. Such flexible electronics could be softer alternatives to existing metal-based electrodes designed to monitor brain activity, and may also be useful in brain implants that stimulate neural regions to ease symptoms of epilepsy, Parkinson's disease, and severe depression.

Energy-Harvesting Design Aims to Turn Wi-Fi Signals Into Useable Power

Energy-Harvesting Design Aims to Turn Wi-Fi Signals Into Useable Power

Any device that sends out a Wi-Fi signal also emits terahertz waves —electromagnetic waves with a frequency somewhere between microwaves and infrared light. These high-frequency radiation waves, known as "T-rays," are also produced by almost anything that registers a temperature, including our own bodies and the inanimate objects around us.

World's First Ultrasound Biosensor

World's First Ultrasound Biosensor

The ability to accurately monitor drug levels and biological molecules inside patients in real time has remained largely elusive. Most of the implantable monitors invented so far rely on high tech and expensive detectors such as CT scans or MRI. Using ultrasound - which is cheap and portable - as a means to track a disease state as in response of a tumour to a new drug or the risk of a heart attack with the rise of a diagnostic protein called…
