Cell Phones Could Be Talk-Powered

Comments Off on Cell Phones Could Be Talk-Powered

How cool would it be if your cell phone could gain all the power it needed to fuel your conversations by the actual sound of those conversations?  Scientists at Sungkyunkwan University in Seoul, South Korea think they’ve developed the technology that could soon have that very application. The technology produces energy from the vibrations caused by sounds.  The prototype consists of tiny zinc oxide wires sandwiched between two electrodes.  A sound pad on top vibrates when hit by sound waves which causes the zinc oxide strands to compress and release.  That generates an electrical current that charges the battery. Currently, the prototype has only been able to convert sound at high decibel levels like loud traffic to generate about 50 millivolts of electricity, but the scientists are hoping that changing the material the wires are made of will allow more energy to be produced from lower sound levels.

Comments Off on More Hydrogen from Sunlight

When there’s a good idea around, there’s more than one person pursuing it. And so it turns out that the artificial photosynthesis we covered recently isn’t the only approach being pursued to produce hydrogen using only water and sunlight. A team of scientists from the Department of Energy’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory and Stanford University and others at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) are also working on a method to generate hydrogen from water using sunlight

This is the Largest Model for Wildlife Conservation in the World

Images: Panthera It’s no secret that traditional conservation methods, while noble, have been failing miserably. Since the first forest and wildlife conservation programs were embraced internationally some 40-50 years ago, half of the world’s forests have been razed, and biodiversity has plummeted around the globe, to the point where many scientists are already terming this era that of the 6th great extinction.
