A sea salt-based self-charging gadget that generates power from moisture in the air

According to a news release from the National University of Singapore (NUS), a team of researchers from the College of Design and Engineering (CDE) has created a self-charging electrical generating (MEG) device that creates power from air moisture. Made with easily available sea salt The unique device is made of a 0.3-millimeter layer of cloth and includes nothing but sea salt, carbon ink, and a special water-absorbing gel. The new MEG technology is believed to solve difficulties commonly connected with these machines, such as water saturation of the device when exposed to ambient humidity, resulting in subpar electrical performance. To accomplish this, a research team led by Assistant Professor Tan Swee Ching from CDE's Department of Materials Science and Engineering developed a n...
