Energy harvester that creates power from ambient vibrations finally comes to market

Energy harvester that creates power from ambient vibrations finally comes to market | Energy of the future | Scoop.it
We can stuff as many powerful processors and as much memory as we want into our phones and tablets, but it won't matter unless the devices can draw enough energy to make use of it all.

Digital Sustainability's curator insight, May 7, 2013 8:17 AM

As you all should know by now, batteries are one of the biggest bottlenecks preventing the advancement of our mobile tech. We can stuff as many powerful processors and as much memory as we want into our phones and tablets, but it won’t matter unless the devices can draw enough energy to make use of it all. Even if the mobile industry can produce a battery that can store significantly more energy than the average lithium-ion, it would still be susceptible to draining. However, what if our devices were powered by an energy harvester that could create energy out of thin air? MicroGen Systems is bringing that kind of device to market.

MicroGen’s energy harvester, dubbed Bolt, provides power like a battery — but uses a very different means to get there. Housing a piezoelectric microelectromechanical system (MEMS) inside the casing pictured above, the unit creates energy from vibrations in the surrounding environment. Ambient vibrations cause a flap on the device (pictured below) to move back and forth, which in turn creates a current that dumps energy in to either a capacitor or a thin rechargeable battery next to the flap.
