Smartwatches powered by wearers: CUHK researchers aim to harvest energy from human movements

In a laboratory in the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK), researchers study a swinging metal pole designed to mimic the movement of human arms.Using a highly compact generator containing fewer than 10 components – including a motion capture unit and power generation unit – the researchers aim to harvest the energy created by human motion to power smartwatches and wristbands.This research, documented in academic journals including Applied Energy and IEEE Internet of Things Journal earlier…
