Will your next phone be powered by your heartbeat? Scientists reveal implantable battery that can charge from the movement of our organs

article-0-1AE8F74C00000578-789_634x561Forget carrying around a charger – you next mobile could be powered by the beating of your heart, researchers have revealed. A team of US and Chinese researchers has revealed a tint implantable battery they have used to power a pacemaker. It converts the constant movement of organs such as the heart, lungs and diaphragm into energy.  The small strip converts the constant movement of organs such as the heart, lungs and diaphragm into energy. The tiny piezoelectric power plants are comprised of lead zirconate titanate nanoribbons, housed in biocompatible plastic. There’s also an integrated rectifier that converts the electric signal and a tiny rechargeable battery, all encased in the same plastic.  To produce more power, multiple units could be placed on an organ, the team believe. It the future, they say, it could be used to power a range of gadgets. The tiny piezoelectric power plants are comprised of lead zirconate titanate nanoribbons, housed in biocompatible plastic. There’s also an integrated rectifier that converts the electric signal and a tiny rechargeable battery, all encased in the same plastic.  The team has so far implanted the gadget onto the heart of a cow, and have even managed to place two units onto the heart, doubling the power output. It is hoped it could be used for medical implants initially.
