Electric Cars To Sell Unused Energy Back Into Grid?

electric car charging in grid

I’m only writing about this because this story’s everywhere, but the National Science Foundation recently proposed an idea – what if electric cars could sell their extra unused energy back into the energy grid? It’s a shift in perspective – as opposed to simply being energy consumers, plugging in and sucking energy down, they could [...more]

Scientist Can Now Teleport Energy, *BAMF*

I’m not even going to pretend I know what the hell is going on in this graphic, but apparently, it’s what it looks like when pure energy is teleported. OK. So, there’s this quantum phenomenon called “entanglement” in which two particles can share the same space while simultaneously being very far apart – even light [...more]

Silicone Implants Harvest Human Energy For Later Use

Princeton University engineers have found a way to harvest the energy from human movement such as walking, talking or breathing. Creepy? Well, yes, but it’s also very cool – they’ve created a way to turn silicone sheets into “piezoelectric” materials that generate electricity when flexed. In other words, silicon implants – or giant sheets of [...more]
