New Microchip Improves Future of Self-Powered Wearable Technology

Energy from your body heat and motion could fuel the future of preventative health care. Researchers at the University of Virginia are developing a low-power microchip that can support on-body, real-time health monitoring. By harvesting all its needed energy from sources like body heat, motion and sunlight, the chip will provide an extremely compact, long-lasting power source for body metric sensors.
