Nano Power For Your Mobile Phone

We get to see lots of stories from around the world about greener business mobiles, that produce less CO2, or no CO2. Some sound like the stuff of science fiction, but it is actually science fact, that one day your green mobile phone might just be powered by your own heart beat?  And what would it be, well the less fuel used would mean the less CO2 produced.  The less CO2, the lower the Earths temperature.  The less chance of climate change.  Mobile phones produce a lot of CO2.  And average user can produce a tonne of CO2 per year.  So if anything can stop CO2 that has got to be a good thing.

Prof. Keon Jae Lee (KAIST, Dept. of Materials Science and Engineering) and Prof. Zhong Lin Wang (Georgia Institute of Technology, Dept. of Materials Science and Engineering) over in the US have developed a new form of flexible nanogenerator, using bio-implantable sensors made from flexible super thin ceramic piezoelectric materials that capture the beating of the heart and convert it into electrical energy.  And the idea is to put this material into mobile phones. 

So what could you do with this bio-eco friendly material, well it’s a power generating system without wires, whereby the battery is installed inside the body (Yes you read that right) well the theory is that you should be able to plug your mobile phone into your self and use the nonpolluting energy of your body to make your phone calls with...

Science wonder, maybe science fact, but it would be an amazing mobile phone and CO2 free.
