Tech Deep Dive
The Energy Harvesting Kit generates electricity from compression of its Soft Generator unit. Each time the soft generator relaxes from its compressed state, mechanical energy is converted to high voltage electrical energy, harvested, and converted to a low voltage output that you can use to power wearable devices.
By squashing the Soft Generator at a human-friendly 0.5 to 1.5 Hz, you can generate up to 1mW or more average power using our standard Energy Harvesting Kit. Use this to power sensors, activity trackers or any other low power microelectronics.
