Laptops charged by just typing

An Australian University team, led by an Indian-origin researcher, are claiming that in three years, people will be able to charge their laptops just by typing.

Piezoelectric materials - substances that generate electricity when subjected to pressure or concussion - have been known since the 1880s when Pierre Curie, husband of Marie, discovered them.

The researchers from the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology have become the first to be able to accurately measure the energy generated by thin pizoelectric films, which they hope will be easier to incorporate into electronic devices such as laptops, mobile phone chargers and pacemakers.

The research hopes for the development of what it calls 'integrated microscale energy scavenging systems,' which would improve efficiency and extend battery life without having to wait for improvement in the batteries themselves, reports the Telegraph.
