Researchers have generated a 5 volt based on the human voice and the roar of the engines of cars — enough to charge our phones.
The Manager certainly reminiscent of Monsters Inc. which is powered by screaming kids, but to create power to one’s phone out of the sounds we experience in daily life, is nonetheless what a group of researchers from Nokia and the Queen Mary University of London are working on.
The prototype is about the size of a Lumia 925 and equipped with a number of “nanogeneratorer” which is designed specifically to respond to sounds and thus generate enough power to keep a phone running. In essence, this means that the phone can be charged at home on your stereo system or by a walk in the cityscape.
Most interesting is the fact that scientists could generate 5 volt based on the human voice and the roar of the engines of cars-which is enough to charge a phone. Who can read a little more about the project at our site which also has a video that introduces their research.
