Human body as Thermoelectric generators

Human beings produce a lot of energy that mostly goes to waste.

We are looking for the new ways of producing energy or power from the humans heat or energy, new methods of consuming body heat into useful manners have been introduced now we can charge our mobiles and laptops with the help of our bodies heat.

Thermometric generators:

Yangliang Zhang is a mechanical and bio medical engineer who is the inventor of the thermometric generators; he is working with US energy department and looking for the advancement in it. Thermometric generators are the type of generators that will be used for the conversion of waste heat of a hot engine exhaust of any vehicle into electricity. This electrical energy puts up efficiency on the vehicles accessories. These generators would provide with a few semiconductor elements which will produce a voltage when the temperature differs and in the result of all that happening, electric current generates and in the whole process, there would not release any carbon dioxide.

CONVERSION OF BODY HEAT TO ELECTRICITY BY A LIGHT WEIGHT PATCHES

 A Korean institute have been recently developed a flexible thermometric patch which can generate electrical power from the heat of human body. This discovery blossomed the new ways of inventions on this field. The patch designed by the Korean institute has been formed by the mixture of fiber glasses. The solution will then generate electric current after notifying the difference of surface temperatures between our skin and the air.

PIEZEO ELECTRICITY

Another method known as piezo electricity which means electricity produces through the pressure. In this aspect, human heart has been used in producing energy through its pumping pressure. These devices uses tiny amount of power, a millionth part of a watt. Nanotechnology researchers produces such power shirts which have fibers containing gold and zinc oxides, when we move, the fibers rub out and produces current.

HOW COULD WE GAIN POWER FROM THE HUMAN URINE

Generating power from human pee is the most amazing inventions, I have ever seen. We are going to see in our near future that the methods will introduces in which if we get pee on microbial fuel cells and in the result, we will get enough power for the charging of a mobile phone.   Let us describe the whole method, firstly place bacteria inside a ceramic cylinders. Microbial fuel cells will works to feed the live bacteria with the chemicals present in the human urine when the urine will passed over the ceramic cylinders where the bacteria kept alive, they got their feed from, urine and in the result of whole process, electricity would generates. This process is useful for charging your cell phone in the backward areas where the electricity supply is not available or in the load shedding situations. It is being said that in the near future, it will be happen that the robots will gain power with the human urine through public toilets.

HUMANS ARE USED AS A LIVING BATTERY

Fujifilm and Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (Japanese corporations) have recently created a sheet type device that can observe human bodies heat and can converts it into energy. Actually the idea came from the Matrix film in which humans are acting like batteries. This sheet works when it analyzes the difference of air and human body temperature. The sheet is of a minor body but its working really amazes us. In the conclusion of this difference in temperature, electricity generates.
THERMOELECTRIC WRISTWATCHES
                 Thermometric devices are taking their unique position and becoming very common in today life. We never ever realize that one day our body becomes an energy source. Through science, we came to know that human body can produces up to 116 watts a day. The thermometric wristwatch has been introduced by a company named Perpetual Power. The watch attaches to our wrist and can convert human heat to the useful energy which we can utilize in our desired purposes. The development in these watches is in early stages but certain advancements should occur in it.Human bodies heat is quite useful nowadays in generating energy which can be utilized in many important ways. We were never realized that one day our body can produce electricity but the science proves it true through the efficient working of scientists and biologists.
