The rubbery material functions thanks to the piezoelectric effect -- a concept on how movement can generate electricity.
Ultimately, researchers hope that the material will become useful in every facet of life - from robotics to clothing to medical technologies that people use to survive like a pacemaker.
The material will allow pacemakers to power themselves without the need for invasive procedures to change the batteries.
It could probably even be used to obtain energy from the human body, by implanting it near the heart to generate electricity from the heartbeat. SHARE THIS STORY USING ANY OF THE BUTTON BELOW ⬇ PLACE YOUR TEXT ADVERT BELOW ⬇⬇⬇
