New Technology Could Eliminate Phone Chargers, Save The Planet
Charging your phone is top ten most annoying things in our lives, right? Like, we spend roughly 18% of our adult lives (we’ve crunched the numbers) blindly walking around looking for an outlet to plug our phones into.
This is no way to live.
Luckily for us, some scientists from the University of Michigan and Cornell are on the case.
The researchers have mined something called “magnetoelectric multiferroic,” a material that can alter the stream of technology, fundamentally changing how we think about charging our electronic devices.
The way we charge our electronic products now is quite inconvenient.
Basically, we just blast a constant stream of electricity out of our devices and then when it is gone, we throw a big stream of electricity into it to charge our stuff.
With this new technology, our devices will operate with small bursts of energy as needed and waste much less time and energy in both outputting and inputting energy.
This is a big deal for the common consumer as they will not be as tethered to their electric outlets anymore, but also for conservationists as well.
Redefining and repurposing how we use and waste energy could change the future outlook of our planet, as we look for new ways to save the earth’s resources.
