    Researchers Develop Human-Powered Battery for RFID Implantable Chips 

    human-powered-battery-implantable-chips-RFID-blogA group of American and Chinese researchers have worked together to develop a tiny implantable battery which is capable of harvesting and storing energy from the natural contractile and relaxation motions of the heart, lung, and diaphragm.

    These little mechanical energy harvesters have had been successfully tested on cows. The researchers say that they could be used to power a range of gadgets in the future. So it might be possible that you will be able to charge your iPhone by plugging it into your body.

    So how does the battery work? The rectifier integrated in the battery converts the electrical signal which then stores in a tiny rechargeable battery.

    One technology that will benefit from this is RFID. Humans will now be able to implant self-powered microcomputers inside of one’s body. Like all technology, it is neutral. It is how we use it that dictates the tools outcome.

    Implantable NFC Tag Seeks Funding 

    implantable-NFC-xNT-tag-rfid-blogBiohacking startup Dangerous Things is seeking to raise US$8,000 on crowd sourcing website Indiegogo to begin producing an implantable NFC tag that can be used to unlock phones, open doors and share contact details with friends.

    The xNT tag is an NFC Type 2 tag that is encased in a 2mm by 12mm cylindrical Schott 8625 bioglass vial and sterilized in ethylene oxide gas. The team has already produced four prototypes which have been implanted into beta testers’ hands.

    Dangerous Things hopes to raise the money by 17 December in order to put the NTAG203-based xNT into mass production.
