Your body is the battery — the future of wearables just revealed

Scientists at the University of Colorado Boulder have made a huge breakthrough which could change the shape of wearable technology in the next 5 to 10 years. The researchers have developed a low-cost wearable that uses thermoelectric generators to draw power from the human body, as published in peer-reviewed journal Science Advances.

The proof of concept — the ring pictured above — uses a stretchy material called polyimine with a number of thermoelectric chips inserted into it, connected with liquid metal wires.
