In the 237th National Meeting of the American Chemical Society (ACS) an interesting fact came to light that innanogenerator near future we can recharge our cell phones or iPods by waving or stretching our arms, beating of your heart or going for a walk. We don’t need to plug-in our devices in a socket. They can be recharged with the movement of our body parts or our blood circulation inside the body will be enough to recharge the mobile. “Quite simply, this technology can be used to generate energy under any circumstances as long as there is movement,” Zhong Lin Wang who is the lead researcher, stated in a news release.
