Imagine if you could get enough electricity from your body to charge a mobile phone, imagine that the clothes you wear and work all day make enough electricity to illuminate an LED bulb. Isn’t this a wonderful idea? It could also be that your clothes start to generate electricity. Yes, it is currently being used at Nanyang Technological University (NTU Innovating Electricity) in Singapore. In the early stages, scientists (Innovating Electricity Gadgets) have developed a special fabric that can convert the energy produced in your body during movement into electricity. People will start to get this benefit soon after the experiments.
Any adverse effects from this clothing?
Experiments have been going on for years to create smart clothing that generates electricity from body movements. Some researchers have even developed woven fabrics, which can power small electronics through everyday activities. However, the biggest problem with this garment is that its capacity decreases after washing. To meet this challenge, researchers at Nanyang Technological University (NTU) in Singapore have developed textiles that generate efficient electricity. Scientists have created flexible electrodes using styrene-ethylene-butylene-styrene (SEBS) in conjunction with silver nanowires by screen-printing method. These fabrics are made of polyvinylidene fluoride and hexafluoropropylene (PVDF-HPFF), which were attached to glassless perovskites. Power generation efficiency is greatly improved with PVDF-HPF. Researchers averaged 2 per square meter of fabric. Have succeeded in generating 34 watts of electricity. This power is enough to power an LED bulb and a commercial capacitor. However, this special garment does not have any adverse effect on body movements.
Cell phones and smartwatches will be charged
This fabric generates electricity from the vibrations caused by the movements of the body, when the dress is pressed or when the fabric is rubbed with other materials like leather or rubber gloves, this electricity is generated. This fabric can be used to make smart clothes in the future. The electricity generated by the fabric can be used to charge wearable devices such as cell phones and electric smartwatch. We can avoid over-reliance on conventional power sources. From such clothes everyday dresses can be made, which can charge mobiles etc. if required. As this fabric is waterproof fabric, washing does not affect its ability to generate electricity. Made of fiber, this fabric is flexible and durable. These smart clothes can be washed, dried and folded.
