A new class of nanomaterials, called self-aware metamaterials, could supposedly generate their own power and sense changes in their environment - ushering the next material of fabricated living structures.
To test the benefits of the offshore wind power, the first U.S. offshore wind farm was built at Block, Island, Rhode Island. Five wind turbines that would generate a capacity of 30 megawatts was planned to complete. There are already two of these wind turbines built at the area.
In a nod to the original Tesla, Nikola Labs now announces that they have created a device that can convert radio waves into useable DC power for smart phones. If they are correct, our smart devices may be able to fully transition into the 21st century, no longer stuck with 19th century charging conventions.
While there might be limits to the amount of solar power we can collect here on Earth, scientists have long been studying the notion of harnessing solar power from the endless supply that can be found in space. Now, what was once just a notion in the mind of researchers has taken a huge step towards becoming a reality.
