Mimic-nature device that produces energy

Some scientist from the Iowa State University designed and built a small device that could generate energy thanks to a piezoelectrical processes.

They chose to use and model the Cottonwood leaves because its flattened leaves oscillate in a regular pattern that optimizes energy generation due to shape and physiognomy of its leaf stalks.


It is still a prototype and much more study needs to be done, but if it succeeds will allow an off-grid energy harvesting.

Do you think it will work?
