@Elizabeth – yes the army is focusing more on the mission goals, however as long as they indirectly support a greener environment its good.

@Pubudu – Some say these charges only generate less power than a normal phone charger. I am not sure about it as I haven't had a chance to use one.

@78RPM – Do they actually generate power for the traffic lights or is it just a sensor to trigger the signals? I have heard of it but didn't find anyone whom I could clarify.

Yes Shehan portable solar charges will definitely a nice gadgets to have not only for the military but also for the public since because the energy source is everywhere.

@William – yes generating power from noise is a cost efficient way. Why not have a microphone on your gun so that every time you hear gun fire your battery packs charge.  lol

@78rpm – yes the WITT engine is really impressive, specially where it harvests waves from any direction. I wonder why they took so long to come up with this.

@NadineJ – I don't think their ultimate objective is to go green, it's just a byproduct. Their ultimate objective is to have a power source to help military operations

@William – yes detonation only needs a small pulse so even an almost drained battery could detonate a bomb.

@fm – yes most military operations on deserts currently rely on one electricity connection which travels across the desserts. If this connection is broken somewhere the entire military operation would be down.

@Elizabeth – are these equipment heavy ? Military officers always carry heavy backpacks which contains artilleries

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.”
