a.saji you are correct enerygy should be utilized in proper manner. Getting cell phone charged with the help of shorts on the go is really very interesting and innovative technique this invention can end the frustration of mobile users left with flat batteries. All these inventions show how technology is moving so high but still more work is required in this invention

Why did Vodafone see the need to use the balloon caption "Charging the voids" AND put it in the proximity they did?

Never mind - It's been a long week and I'm feeling tired and juvenile.

Cooling too?

If this material is collecting heat, wouldn't it cool you when heat transfers from you to the material?

Don't think small

There's so much to work with in this article - thank you Elizabeth!

Harvesting body heat is terrific.  The first thought was, why stop at just a pocket?  A form-fitting outfit (something like the racing swim-suits seen in the Olympics collects all of the heat.

Then the image of such an undergarment made me think of a superhero costume - and we'd be able to cast electric arcs with our hands.

This brings convenience to the user as now they could charge their mobile without a power outlet. It also helps us to save energy. I feel- very soon we will have a wireless charging pocket too.

Wow that's innovation. What more could you expect than harvesting energy from your own body. We are wasting plenty of heat emitted from our body why not make use of it.

This is one of the best applications of energy harvesting I've seen. Imagine how much energy could be saved -- literally millions of people of every day could be charging their phones while the phones sit in their back pockets.

Energy is something which we should save at every possible time. I do not think there will such an issue but definitely it needs to be utilized in a proper manner.

it is now time for "energy harvesting". these energy harvesting revolution will herald a new stream of engineering which demands interdisciplinary effort and knowledge. This will also trigger product innovation that will result in soultions hitherto "unknown" or not even though of ..!

Latest Analysis
2016 engineering grads can expect to earn an average salary of $65,000 right out of the gate. Petroleum engineers' wallets are much fatter, though -- they are expected to earn about $20K more.
3D printing is now adding value to manufacturers at all steps along the business value chain. Come find out how at a talk by John Jaddou at next month's Embedded Systems Conference in Minneapolis.
From IoT and M2M to flexible robotics and consumer HMI, the advances in smart manufacturing are being deployed on the packaging floor.
These new 3D-printing technologies and printers include some that are truly boundary-breaking: a sophisticated new sub-$10,000, 10-plus materials bioprinter, the first industrial-strength silicone 3D-printing service, and a clever twist on 3D printing and thermoforming for making high-quality realistic models.
Ear-based heart-rate monitoring gained momentum recently, as sensor maker Valencell Inc. announced it has licensed its biometric earpiece technology to Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd for use in so-called “hearable devices.”
