    9 days ago - By Hypebeast

    Throughout the years, modes of generating electricity from various types of waste have been developed, but a new study has found a way to convert sweat from our own fingertips into usable energy. A group of nano-engineering researchers from the University of California San Diego have found that fingertips produce 100 to 1,000 times more sweat than other body parts. According to their paper posted on science journal Joule , the team conducted a test to generate electricity by attaching an absorbent band-shaped device to the tip of a finger. Electrodes are loaded with enzymes that generate...
