Thermoelectric generator could lengthen smartwatch battery life

Everyone dreads the moment their gadgets die on them. This holds true with smaller devices like smartwatches. What if the process of charging your smartwatch could become less taxing? Well, a team of researchers at the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) are cooking up the perfect solution. A wearable thermoelectric generator is currently in the works. With it, you will be able to generate electricity just by attaching the device to your wrist. It converts body heat into energy.

This is definitely a great development for the world of technology. The researchers at KAIST are also looking into other ways that this innovation could be integrated with. Aside from wearable devices,  thermoelectric generators would be quite useful in cars and other vehicles as well.
