New vibration-powered batteries make charging easier than ever
Brother, a company you may know for its sewing machines, is looking to shake up the battery world quite literally. the company is showing off vibration-powered generators that woudl allow you to charge your gadgets anywhere just by giving it a good shake. called the Vibration-powered Generating Battery, the batt's fit in any regular AA or AAA slot. With vibration powered batteries, you would be able to charge up anywhere, anytime.Of course, the shaking-to-power ratio is traditionally rather low, so Brother probably will not be changing the world with this tech just yet. For the low -power devices the company envisions using the batteries.
