Thermoelectric generator on glass fabric for wearable electronic devices

Thermoelectric generator on glass fabric for wearable electronic devices | Wearable Technology | Scoop.it
Wearable computers or devices have been hailed as the next generation of mobile electronic gadgets, from smart watches to smart glasses to smart pacemakers.
