Amazing – IIT scientists use eggshell membrane to generate electricity

NEW DELHI: Scientists from Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Kharagpur have used eggshell proteins to develop tiny devices that can harvest electricity from body movements, and could power wearable sensors and devices in future. Proteins found in eggshell membranes have piezoelectric properties, that is, under mechanical stress they produce electricity, researchers said. Bio-inspired piezoelectric materials […]
