Incredible technology promises to turn your entire body into a wireless charger: the user only needs to charge one device, and the rest of the devices that are used can be simultaneously powered

Researchers at the National University of Singapore (NUS) have developed a technology that allows a single device, such as a cell phone placed in a pocket, to wirelessly power other wearable devices on a user's body, using the human body as a means of transmitting power, making it a wireless charger. wire.

The new system allows a single power source, which is fully charged, to power up to 10 body-worn devices for a duration of over 10 hours. He can also harvest energy not used of electronics in a typical home or office environment to power the w.

Technology has the potential to omit the need for batteries

“Batteries are among the most expensive components in wearable devices, and they add bulk to the design. Our unique system has the potential to omit the need for batteries, thereby allowing manufacturers to miniaturize devices and significantly reduce production cost,” said Jerald Yoo, Associate Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at NUS.

“More excitingly, without the constraints of batteries, our development could enable the next generation of wearable applications such as ECG patches, gaming accessories and remote diagnostics,” added Yoo.

Technology turns the body into a wireless charger

The NUS team designed a receiver and transmitter system that uses the very obstacle to wireless power — the human body — as a medium for energy transmission and energy harvesting. Each receiver and transmitter contains a chip, which is used as a springboard to extend coverage over the entire body.

A user only needs to place the transmitter on a single power source such as the SmartWatch on a user's wrist, while multiple receivers can be placed anywhere on a person's body. The system then takes advantage of the energy from the source to feed various w into the user's body, through a process called body-coupled energy transmission.

In this way, the user will only need to charge one device, and the rest of the devices that are used can be simultaneously powered from that single source.
