The technology, once fully developed, may be used in personal electronics items which would not require any batteries at all.
A research team from Georgia Institute of Technology, USA, has discovered a method of using common body movements to generate power for LCD displays, radio signal transmissions and diodes.
The ultimate goal of the research is to find a method to use body movements to power medical devices that would reside within the body.
The technique could also be used to charge portable electronics such as iPods and cell phones.
"This development represents a milestone toward producing portable electronics that can be powered by body movements without the use of batteries or electrical outlets," said Zhong Lin Wang, the lead scientist of the project.
"Our nanogenerators are poised to change lives in the future. Their potential is only limited by one's imagination," Zhong added.
The research is still in the early stages, but once it's fully developed, it may be used in personal electronics items which would not require any batteries at all. This will help companies to make even smaller iPods and cell phones.
The technology uses zinc oxide nanowires to generate power from usual body movements. Even heart beats can generate power.
In order to generate current, millions of nanowires are used in a nanogenerator. These are so small that 500 of them could fit in one human hair.
The voltage created by five nanogenerators matches that of two AA batteries. The nanowires could even be used in clothing in future to create current from body movements. In future, a person may decide to charge his phone by climbing stairs.
To make it possible such apps use data connectivity or internet connection.
Huawei and Samsung launched their flagship smartphones this week.
F8 is meant to be a developer conference, where discussion are held and presentation being presented about next big thing from Facebook.
Here we present to you five other smartphones which carry a similar or near about pricing as that of Q450.
With 4 GB RAM and Intel's quad core processor, it is said to be seven times faster than its predecessor.
The Mi Pad is Xiaomi's first tablet offering in the Indian market.
Samsung, had unveiled the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona earlier this month and both the phones are completely different from previous Samsung smartphones.
Both the phones come in three storage variants – 32 GB, 64 GB, and 128 GB.
This week Xolo launched two new phones while Datawind made a comeback with three cheap handsets.
The company has also made it amply clear by posting several teasers of M1 Note on its Facebook India page.
