SnowTENG - First of its Kind Nanogenerator
This small, inexpensive, slim device can be embedded in the bottom of a ski or the sole of snow boots. It generates its own power and can monitor the athletic performance of skiers and others engaged in winter sports. The device converts contact with snow into electricity, which the device harvests. Developed by UCLA engineers in warm, sunny LA, it has tremendous potential to create the next generation of wearable devices to monitor athletes and to work as smart weather stations with no battery power needed.
