Latest: Directory:Vibrations > Directory:Piezoelectric > Suggestion: Combine Ricoh's Energy-Generating Rubber with Goodyear's Electricity-Generating Tire Initiative - The "Energy-Generating Rubber" created by Ricoh generates as high a level of electricity while its appearance is a soft and flexible sheet. Maybe Goodyear could put this to good use in their quest for an effective way to generate electricity from the movement of their tires as they go down the road. (PESN May 23, 2015)

Latest: Directory:Vibrations > Directory:Piezoelectric > Directory:Vibration Energy Harvesters by MicroGen Systems, Inc. - University of Virginia alumnus Robert Andosca and his Ph.D. Advisor, Professor Junru Wu, have developed a tiny vibration energy scavenging device, half the size of a sugar cube. The "MEMS" device — for microelectromechanical systems — converts mechanical energy into electricity using a special "piezoelectric" material that generates a charge at the slightest jostle.

Latest: There was an error working with the wiki: Code[1] > Classifieds: Inventor Seeks Best Method to Harness Short Stroke Linear Power - An inventor has a promising technology that produces fluctuations of 5 mm - 2 cm at a frequency of 600 to 3000 vibrations per minute, which can be increased or decreased, along a nominally linear path. In order to both harness the power he's producing with his prototypes as well as to fully validate the technology as a practical, self-loopable overunity system.... (PESWiki September 19, 2012)

Directory:Vibrations / Directory:Solid State Generators > Cell Phones Powered by Conversations - Just as speakers transform electric signals into sound, the opposite process -- of turning sound into a source of electrical power -- is possible, according to Scientists from Korea who have turned the main ingredient of calamine lotion into a tiny material that converts sound waves into electricity. Other noise sources such as traffic could also be harnesses for the power grid. (Discovery Sept. 13, 2010)

Directory:Batteries >Directory:M2E Power - M2E Power is emphasizing the commercial applications for their technology, with a specific goal: revolutionizing cell phone batteries. An external charger generates between 300 and 700 percent more energy than current kinetic energy technologies, and may eventually replace cell phone batteries altogether. (PESWiki Aug. 21, 2008)

Directory:Zero Point Energy / Directory:Vibrations > David Sereda - Zero Point Energy (video) - Discusses his research on differentials, Zero Point Energy, and the hidden harmonic codes of the universe, including prototyping. "There are actual precise harmonic codes which are multiple frequencies working in tandem together," he said. "...It can lead to anything from antigravity to infinite energy."

Directory:Wind > Directory:Humdinger Windbelt - Invented by Shawn Frayne, the Windbelt is a taut membrane fitted with a pair of magnets that oscillate between coils. Designed for low wind speeds and budgets, the device is 10x to 30x times more efficient than the best microturbines, and its cost is proportionately small.

Image:Vibration Energy Scavenging VIBES 95x95.jpg

Directory:Vibration Energy Scavenging -- VIBES - Researchers at the University of Southampton, UK, have developed an efficient, sugar-cube-sized electric generator that feeds on environmental vibrations, via the wobbling of several magnets attached to a millimeter-sized cantilever. The device could power small, low-power devices such as wireless sensors or medical implants.

Directory:Piezoelectric > Harvesting Energy from Natural Motion - A team at Duke University has come up with at device that is basically a small cantilever with an end magnet that interacts with nearby magnets. The cantilever base is piezoelectric, releasing electrical voltage when strained. By changing the distance of the magnets, the researchers "tune" the interactions of the system with its environment.
