Scientists Power a Computer Using Only Algae and Daylight to Make the Electricity

Researchers have used a widespread species of blue-green algae to power a microprocessor continuously for a year—and counting—using nothing but ambient light and water. Their system has potential as a reliable and renewable way to power small devices. Comparable in size to an AA battery, the system contains a type of non-toxic algae called Synechocystis that […]

Florida Inventors Hall of Fame announces 2021 inductees

(University of South Florida (USF Innovation)) Seven Florida Inventors whose discoveries are saving lives, transforming the environment, and creating new technologies are named as 2021 Inductees to the Florida Inventors Hall of Fame. Among them are Dean Kamen, often referred to as the modern Thomas Edison due to the scope of his trailblazing inventions, including the Segway®; and Mark Dean, who holds three patents for the original IBM PC and is co-inventor of the ISA bus which revolutionized modern computing.

Leveraging the 5G network to wirelessly power IoT devices

(Georgia Institute of Technology) Researchers at Georgia Institute of Technology’s ATHENA have uncovered an innovative way to tap into the over-capacity of 5G networks, turning them into “a wireless power grid” for powering Internet of Things (IoT) devices. The breakthrough leverages a Rotman lens-based rectifying antenna capable of millimeter-wave harvesting at 28 GHz. The innovation could help eliminate the world’s reliance on batteries for charging devices by providing an alternative using excess 5G capacity.

How space technology can help tackle climate change – World Economic Forum

Meteorological satellites have long been used to forecast extreme weather events. Now, Space 2.0 and frontier technologies are being used to combat climate change. The tech can also be used to improve agriculture – and for tackling wildlife crime. Satellites…

A new dye shakes up solar cells

(Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne) EPFL scientists have developed a new dye for solar cells that enables high power-conversion efficiency while being simple and cheap to make. The dye also works exceptionally well under low-light conditions, which is key for self- and low-powered devices.

Energy harvesting: Printed thermoelectric generators for power generation

(Karlsruher Institut für Technologie (KIT) ) Thermoelectric generators, TEGs for short, convert ambient heat into electrical power. They enable maintenance-free, environmentally friendly, and autonomous power supply of the continuously growing number of sensors and devices for the Internet of Things (IoT) and recovery of waste heat. Scientists of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) have now developed three-dimensional component architectures based on novel, printable thermoelectric materials. The results are reported in npj Flexible Electronics (DOI: 10.1038/s41528-020-00098-1) and ACS Energy Letters (DOI: 10.1021/acsenergylett.0c02159)
