008Skin-Like Triboelectric Nanogenerator Uses Friction To Produce Power-1

Innovative human skin-like triboelectric nanogenerator relies on friction to generate power

As part of a new project, scientists at China’s National Center for Nanoscience and Technology have developed an innovative triboelectric nanogenerator called STENG that is just as flexible as human skin. Like other triboelectric devices, the contraption produces electricity as a result of friction between two different materials. A paper describing its potential uses has recently…
