Imagine that the next time you dance or even just move around, you might be able to juice up your device as well. This is thanks to a tech from Samsung that harvests your body movements to charge your smartphone according to this patent.
It describes the tech as “a wearable electronic device that activates a sensor using electrical energy generated by an energy harvester” and at the same time, it also “determines a user’s activity based on sensor data obtained from the sensor,”. In a way, that sounds like the smart wear clothing will feature fitness tracker too.
The patent also made a reference to a lightweight small capacity battery but not exact details were mentioned further. As the patent is a filing of an idea, we do not know how much power can a human body make and be stored to charge smartphones through the tech.
While the charge generated may not be as plentiful as large-capacity power banks, it would be a life saver when your phone battery bar is red, and you need that extra juice to carry you through the day.
