This Technology Creates Electricity From Moisture In The Air
We’ve known for a fact that harvesting energy from the environment facilitates in making self-sustained systems.
And, that’s what the research paper published in Nature Journal for a new green technology thinks for the process of creating electricity from the moisture in the air.
Yes, you read that correctly. A technology that will help you generate power from out of thin air.
As the journal explains – “thin-film devices made from nanometre-scale protein wires harvested from the microbe Geobacter sulfurreducens can generate continuous electric power from atmospheric moisture.”
There’s definitely a lot of jargon to understand – but basically they are utilizing an air-powered generator to create electricity. You can take a look at the journal if you want to explore the exact details.
It may sound surreal but it is indeed a thing. They also claim it to be one of the most exciting applications of protein nanowires.
Apparently, the technology should also work in a desert scene with minimal moisture. Not just the eco-friendly aspect of it, but potentially this will be an affordable tech.
