Get Fit, Produce Electricty

Thanks to electrical and computer engineers at North Carolina State University, a new wearable electronics design can produce far more electricity from body heat than previous ones.

The prototype thermoelectric generators use a layer of conductive material on the skin that spreads out the heat. The aim is to design wearable technologies that can power long-term monitoring of heart health and other health-related trends, without use of batteries.
