For anyone who
thought gyms with workout equipment that generate electricity were a good idea, prepare to be one-upped. Researchers at
the Georgia Institute of Technology are working on metallic nanowires
as nanogenerators that transform bodily kinetic energy
into pure electricity. We were all thinking, oh, sweet, power-generating nanotech
clothes. Naw dude, these peeps want to implant the
nanogenerators right in your corporeal form for maximum energy output. Thought your mom got mad when you got a tattoo
or piercing? Try explaining subcutaneous power generating zinc oxide nanowires.
