Good Vibrations Generating Energy?

Most of us are always in motion in out daily lives, what you could use that motion to generate electricity?

A Japanese electronics firm has shown off a vibration-harvesting generator that could replace standard batteries.

The Vibration Energy Cell batteries deliver power after a vigorous shake

Brother Industries, better known for its line of printers, claims the devices could be used in place of AA or AAA batteries for some applications.

Generating Hydrogen without the Carbon Footprint?

Here’s some interesting research on generating hydrogen:

Researchers generate hydrogen without the carbon footprint
A greener, less expensive method to produce hydrogen for fuel may eventually be possible with the help of water, solar energy and nanotube diodes that use the entire spectrum of the sun’s energy, according to Penn State researchers.

“Other researchers have developed ways to produce hydrogen with mind-boggling efficiency, but their approaches are very high cost,” says Craig A. Grimes, professor of electrical engineering. “We are working toward something that is cost effective.” Read more
