Researchers from the State University of New York at Binghamton have developed a unique bio-battery that uses bacteria as a power source and can be stretched, twisted like a normal piece of fabric.
The textile-based battery, as the researchers say, delivered stable electricity-generating capabilities when tested under multiple stretching and twisting cycles.
They believe it could one day use human sweat to power wearable devices, offering a better alternative over conventional batteries.
"There is a clear and pressing need for flexible and stretchable electronics that can be easily integrated with a wide range of surroundings to collect real-time information," said Seokheun Choi, lead author study.
The technology is sustainable, renewable, and eco-friendly and must work reliably when adopted to moving organs and parts, he added.
