Electrics and Electronics Becomes User-Dedicated Smart Material

Electrics and Electronics Becomes User-Dedicated Smart Material

An important new trend is buying electrics and electronics you customise to function not just shape. See the new IDTechEx report, "Complete Electronics as Smart Material, User-Customized 2020-2040". Builders, textile manufacturers, those doing home improvement and others are starting to buy electrically-smart materials direct from materials companies, bypassing the electronics industry.

Webinar 26 May - Making Waves: The Rise of Electric Boats & Ships

Webinar 26 May - Making Waves: The Rise of Electric Boats & Ships

In the over one hundred electric vehicle sectors tracked by IDTechEx, we predominantly foresee a transition partly or completely to a traction battery over the next two decades. The case is not so simple for the marine sector: due to the sheer scale of the power, energy and distance requirements for many vessels, reducing maritime emissions will require solutions varying from batteries and fuel cells to premium fuels, scrubbers and slow-steaming.

Webinar: New Materials Make Supercapacitors Better than Batteries

Webinar: New Materials Make Supercapacitors Better than Batteries

There is a huge amount of new research on supercapacitors and their variants and particularly on their materials, because these control their performance and cost more than anything. This webinar shares some of the research from the new IDTechEx report, "Supercapacitor Materials and Formats 2020-2040".

Energy Harvesting Microwatt to Gigawatt: Latest Situation

Energy Harvesting Microwatt to Gigawatt: Latest Situation

Energy harvesting EH is the conversion of ambient energy into useful electricity. It may be sub-microwatts to gigawatt level, low power being primarily for electronics and high power for electrical engineering but there are common factors in all of that such as the introduction of new electrodynamic (electrokinetic) and photovoltaic energy harvesting throughout.

Sweat Powered Electronic Skin

The e-skin, made from soft, flexible rubber, can be embedded with sensors that monitor information like heart rate, body temperature, levels of blood sugar and metabolic byproducts that are indicators of health, and even the nerve signals that control our muscles. It does so without the need for a battery, as it runs solely on biofuel cells powered by one of the body's own waste products.
