Imagine that one day the phone is dead, smart phones can be charged directly through the clothing will be good thing. The researchers' new yarn, which generates electricity through stretching exercises, is based on tests that light a small LED lamp using only the weight of the housefly yarn.
According to the researchers, the yarn is made of a carbon nanotube, which is 10,000 times finer than the hair. By a number of yarn composed of "spiral" -like elastic rope, in the process of stretching, elastic can generate electricity.
After the technology is mature, the product may be used in many fields. The researchers said that when the material is sewn into a T-shirt, the material can be fed directly to the exhalation sensor on the smart garment by the stretching force of the chest caused by each breath of the user, and this material is most noticeable The place is that it can also operate in seawater and get a lot of energy in the marine environment.
