Why just harness  light or vibration individually when you can use both to create electricity? Making sure to fully exploit both sun and sound simultaneously, researchers from  Sungkyunkwan University and Samsung Advanced Institute of Technology in South Korea have engineered a novel new device standing only 300nm tall. Publishing their work in the most recent issue of Nanotechnology , the team explained how their hybrid harvester could take advantage of the separate sources of energy to produce a single, constant output of electricity.
