1 Wearable Technology Research Alisa Maria Wronski November 28 2013

2 FIRST COMMON FACTOR ALL wearable technology has one thing in common:

3 FIRST COMMON FACTOR It is worn on the body.

4 SECOND COMMON FACTOR Most wearable technology will require power

5 SECOND COMMON FACTOR Batteries are used because they are mobile from an outlet, and can be carried around.

6 SECOND COMMON FACTOR But they can be bulky, and sometimes become the main feature of most technologies.

7 GOOGLE GLASS For example the bulky battery only last 4 hours, and it is the largest part of the device.

9 BODY AND POWER

10 The movie Matrix showed humans harvested for power. This is actually a great idea for wearable technology knowing that the device will be used in conjunction with an energy emitting being.

11 DARPA Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency Creating new technologies for military use, they created GPS and Internet http://www.darpa.mil

12 DARPA Currently working on lightening technology for soldiers, because they must be as agile as possible

13 DARPA Their current objective: “Sensor-studded clothing worn by a soldier to track his movements and vital signs and a cellphone is implanted in a tooth,” according to a story describing the DARPA program last year in The Smithsonian.

15 BODY HEAT-FUJITSU The chip uses thermoelectric materials, which produce an electric current when exposed to two different temperatures—such as body heat and the (usually) cooler air around us. http://www.fujitsu.com/global/news/pr/archives/month/2010/20101209-01.html

16 BODY HEAT-FUJITSU There is a growing demand for devices that can efficiently derive energy from the surrounding environment at any time Body heat would enable the devices to be used at all times without worry of powering off. http://www.fujitsu.com/global/news/pr/archives/month/2010/20101209-01.html

17 BODY HEAT-GOOGLE Google Science Fair invites young people to share projects. Canadian Ann Makonsinski created a flashlight powered by human touch. https://www.googlesciencefair.com/en/2013/

18 BODY HEAT-VODAFONE Vodafone created a wearable charger pocket for pants and sleeping bags for music festivals. http://mashable.com/2013/06/13/power-pocket-charging/

19 BODY HEAT-VODAFONE http://mashable.com/2013/06/13/power-pocket-charging/ “One side of that is cold and the other is hot, and when you get a flow of heat through it you can create a voltage and a current.”

21 INNER EAR-M.I.T. http://web.mit.edu/newsoffice/2012/biological-battery-1107.htmlhttp://web.mit.edu/newsoffice/2012/biological-battery-1107.html + http://www-mtl.mit.edu/ulp_medical/index.shtmlhttp://www-mtl.mit.edu/ulp_medical/index.shtml The ear is a natural battery that converts a mechanical force (the vibration of the eardrum) into electrochemical signal converted to the brain, this bio-battery is the source of the signals current. The ions create an electrical voltage that can power devices.

22 INNER EAR-M.I.T. http://web.mit.edu/newsoffice/2012/biological-battery-1107.htmlhttp://web.mit.edu/newsoffice/2012/biological-battery-1107.html + http://www-mtl.mit.edu/ulp_medical/index.shtmlhttp://www-mtl.mit.edu/ulp_medical/index.shtml This could be used to power a self sufficient ear device like mp3 or hearing aid, removing excess bulk from wearables.

24 BREATH POWER http://web.mit.edu/newsoffice/2012/biological-battery-1107.htmlhttp://web.mit.edu/newsoffice/2012/biological-battery-1107.html + http://www-mtl.mit.edu/ulp_medical/index.shtmlhttp://www-mtl.mit.edu/ulp_medical/index.shtml The breath is extremely powerful, it’s like a mini windmill. It can easily be incorporated into wearable’s and it is always available.

27 VIBRATIONS & KINETICS When we move we can power a device.

28 KINECTS-M2E CHARGER M2E makes use of the Faraday principle which states that a "moving magnet could induce an electrical current in a wire coil”

29 KINECTS-M2E CHARGER When the charger is moved, a magnet moves through the coil creating the energy. M2E, however, tweaked the technology so that even "subtle micro-motions" are translated into energy. http://goodcleantech.pcmag.com/news-and-events/280495-m2e-power-to-launch-battery-charger-juiced-by-kinetic-energy

30 KINECTS-EMPOWER Powers lanterns in rural Africa using kinetic movements in playgrounds by children. http://emplay.squarespace.com

31 KINECTS- DANCE PANTS Leggings that power your mp3 player as you run and dance. http://inhabitat.com/power-your-music-player-with-your-running-pants/

32 KINECTS-DANCE CHARGE A charger worn around arm such as any mp3 band is already worn, but powers device. http://inhabitat.com/power-your-music-player-with-your-running-pants/

33 VIBRATIONS-M.I.T. Chandrakasan and his colleagues use piezoelectric materials, which produce an electric current when subjected to mechanical pressure, the DC current that is created can be stored in a chip 2mm small. http://www-mtl.mit.edu/~anantha/research.html

34 THE FUTURE OF POWER As devices become smaller and more portable, batteries must too. But there is only so much we can shrink, that is why a self sufficient power would be the logical step in making wearable technologies more comfortable and seamless to the body http://www.studioroosegaarde.net/project/intimacy/info/
