Scientists from the Massachusetts Institute turned a Wi-Fi signal into electricity
Scientists from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in the United States designed a machine that turns Wi-Fi signals into electrical power to power electronic devices without the need to charge it at night, according to the Infobae's website. web
These scientists have created a small object with thin materials that absorbs the waves of the wireless network and electromagnetic waves in the air, and this turns into electricity.
Thanks to this, Wi-Fi can become a generalized source of energy. According to Thomas Palacios, professor of electrical and computer engineering at MIT, the road is paved for collecting energy stolen from the environment.
"When you have one of these devices, you collect energy 24 hours a day, 7 days a week (…) you can cover the desk with an electronic tablecloth, and even if it's just on the table, it would be all the time to collect energy, "the researcher assured Nature magazine.
This creation has allowed the person to have electricity almost everywhere and use it in mobile phones, laptops and other devices.
Antenna receiving the radiation emitted by any device that uses frequencies of 2.4 GHz and 5.6 GHz. This alternating current flows into a semiconductor with molybdenum disulfide (MoS2), where it is converted into a direct electric current.
