Eco-Friendly Sugar Powered Batteries

Batteries aren’t simply an agony to supplant and discard; they’re certifiable lethal waste. An examination group at Virginia Tech is creating a battery controlled by sugar that may keep a huge number of huge amounts of accepted batteries out of landfills.

Sugar is a common wellspring of vitality, so it bodes well that we tackle that vitality to make earth cordial batteries. Y.H. Percival Zhang, the lead scientist on the task, says in an article distributed in Nature Communications that we could see these sweet new batteries in devices when 2017.

Sugar batteries could be energized basically by filling them with additional sugar, which sounds a great deal like a long distance science fiction.

Sixth sense technology has incredibly increased its usage in the medical field. One such effort is by HQ Inc., who developed patented CorTemp®, an ingestible core body thermometer pill and the RF compatible CorTemp miniaturized data recorder. For people in intense professions, like space travel, different versions of these pills have been already used for some time. But soon it might be adopted by all the technology loving doctors, carrying them in their medical kit. These pills contain tiny sensors and transmitters. Doctors and researchers extend their medical knowledge and join hands with technology that supports the healthcare like core body temperature pill technology for its use in the prevention and detection of heat stress and heat related illness.

The organ system effortlessly monitors, records and reports real-time core body temperature in time-correlation with heart rate accurately, wirelessly and comfortably, every time! Without the usage of catheters, wire connections or probes, scientists, researchers and clinicians can monitor their free of discomfort and confinement.
