“Scientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have discovered an energy source that you can see only through a microscope.
The researchers devised a process for generating electricity using nanotechnology. They plan to refine the process in hopes of creating a new environmentally friendly battery, among other products.
It works like this: Researchers used tiny wires, known as carbon nanotubes, to create a powerful wave of energy, according to Michael Strano, and MIT associate professor of chemical engineering…”
The geek in me thinks this is phenomenal. I hope this does not remain an MIT project and moves forward so we hear about future implementation. They are focusing on a battery as a test but it has great potential in the energy world. Of course, I need to read more on current energy sources and usage to keep with the pace!
