A lot of mobile device chargers feature kinetic energy harvesters like the nPower Peg, which could be used for wireless for people on the go.

Now-a-days using wireless connections are very successful. If some where we used the wired connections or networks it creates confusion. people don't know which wire is used for which purpose.

I'd like to see more on what type of devices they have for harvesting.  It's nice to know that they can do it, but I'd like to hear how they do it.

I see energy harvesting more and more in uC controlled, wirelessly connected industrial sensors and networks.  There are also a lot of protocols for wireless connectivity (WiFi, Zigbee, etc.) that may help early adoption of this technology.

Agree. The ability to provide energy based on the actuation a device is quite interested. By pressing a button on a typical electric switch, packets of data can be transmitted to a near by receiver and its powered using the same mechanical action. The concept of Energy Harvesting seems like sci-fi but EnOcean has made it into reality. Truly amazing.

Interesting technology and just more evidence that wireless designs and automation are going to make a big impact in the years ahead, eliminating cabling and increasing the convenience and flexibility of systems.

misdirection of antiquated data processing instrumentation to provide better security for the status quo---metrology should play an important key in elevating design for functionality, as architecture, also designs for functionality where we would be living mostly below frostline, while saving on heating and cooling costs, paying for itself in a short time. We do everything all wrong, an extension of the academic caste system used to devide the classes, in all modes of living dictated into the pseudo-educational system, mostly

The EnOcean products are another forward step in ISA (Integrated Systems Automation) offered over the past several decades by little know companys to early adopter's such as military, government, commercial building owners, etc.  The key however, to successful use of these emerging technology products is their installation by qualified and properly trained people. 

This being said a user is well advised to check out the install contractor.  The systems only work "as advertised" if properly installed, and may cause serious damage due to failure.  To prevent this parallel or human overides should be considered upon installation and use.
