Materials for electricity generation and temperature regulation

Leibniz IPHT 83792Researchers in Germany are developing a textile-based, self-sufficient energy supply that aims to provide mobile electronic devices worn close to the body with energy – even when no external power supply is available.

Smart textiles can use the warmth emitted by the human body and convert it into electricity. Their cooling properties also make the new materials interesting for safety-relevant applications while ensuring increased wearing comfort and well-being.
