Most of us think of sweat as a nuisance. We spend a lot of money on air conditioners, fans, and antiperspirants. That may all change.
#4- A Wearable Patch that Uses Sweat To Produce Power
Researchers at the University of California, San Diego, just revealed their latest wearable. It’s a flexible square patch that contains specific enzymes which could feed on human sweat to produce power.
#3- A Powerful Patch
Although the patch (or biofuel cell) is just a few centimeters in size, it was able to generate enough power to run a radio for an entire two days. Later versions powered even longer.
#2- Just The Start
These biofuel cells could eventually fuel a Bluetooth connection that could deliver information right to a smartphone. Your sweat may be able to give you enough power to stream your favorite playlists while you work out.
#1- The Best Part About This Wearable
These patches are worn on the outside of the body. They are non-invasive. The application is fast and painless.
