Motion material that generates electricity
Scientists at the University of Texas have fabricated an electricity producing yarn, all you have to do is stretch and twist and current will be created.
The yarn is made from carbon nanotubes, which have a diameter 10,000 times smaller than a human hair – talk about a fine knit.The creators were able to light a small LED, by stretching lengths of yarn lighter then a housefly. This could mean that clothing could create electricity from human movement.
No batteries required – just move and shake.
