Would you believe that by simply sitting around, you could generate enough electricity to power electronic devices? Scientists developed new innovative circuits that are capable of harnessing electricity from body heat. Using the principle of thermoelectric generators (TEG) made from semiconductor elements, it extracts electrical energy and boosts it, combining multiple components until sufficient energy is made to operate the electronic device. As you can see in the photo, the wireless transmitter was powered by the heat emitted by the person's hand via a thermoelectric generator. I can't wait to have this one for my gadgets.
