A self-sustainable wearable multi-modular E-textile bioenergy microgrid system
  • New concept of an e-textile microgrid could use your activity to generate electricity.
  • A system like this would have sweat-based biofuel cells, electrostatic generators, and supercapacitors for high-power output.
  • It could power, for example, different types of displays, like an LCD wristwatch, along with a system of sensors.
  • The design could be a base for creating efficient, sustainable and autonomous wearable systems.
