Fraunhofer has a good reputation for being on the cutting edge of design and engineering and here the institute is doing it again. With the number of wearable devices being designed for the medical, sports and even fashion industries, new types of power sources like flexible energy harvesters and batteries will be necessary. Fraunhofer engineers are not the only ones working to solve this problem, but their effort is interesting and has a lot of potential.
