KAIST's Wearable Thermo-Element Wins Netexplo Grand Prix 2015

We've seen cloth that generates electricity before, but this concept keeps it smart and simple: no need to work out like a madman, your own body temperature can make the trick.

This 10 cm strip can produce 40 mW.

50 cm to 1 m of this 'Wearable Thermo-Element' designed by KAIST Professor JO Byeong-jin can generate the 2W needed to power your smartphone.

Presented last year, the concept just won the Netexplo Grand Prix 2015.
