Future of MEMS energy harvesting discussed

Energy harvesting may seem like a pipe dream, but the reality is that it's not too far away relatively speaking. Microelectromechanical systems, or MEMS, could potentially help.

New polymer harvests energy from water vapor

MIT engineers say they've found a way to generate electricity just by drawing on the water vapor in the air.

Self-powered touchscreens created

Touchscreens could generate their own power, thanks to the discovery of a new method of energy harvesting.
