Wireless wearables powered by human skin

Wireless wearables powered by human skin

This scientist's vision is to invent devices that not only operate without batteries but take the concept of battery-less wearables one step further. In his mind's eye, the next generation of wearables will transfer power between wireless sensors using a far more efficient conductor - human skin.
