An Ipad that charges when you use it...

A biotemplated design of a flexible piezoelectric energy harvesting nano generator.
The flexible piezoelectric nanogenerator was created by modifying an M13 viral gene that is harmless to humans and widely exists in nature, and then synthesizing a highly piezoelectric inorganic material, barium titanate (BaTiO3, or BTO).

By using this biotemplated piezoelectric material, a high-output flexible nano generator with enhanced performance could be fabricated.

A flexible piezoelectric nanogenerator that converts mechanical energy of tiny movements into electrical energy is ideal for the next generation energy harvesting technology.
