Harnessing everyday motion to power mobile devices (video)
Imagine powering your cell phone by simply walking around your office or rubbing it with the palm of your hand. Rather than plugging it into the wall, you become the power source. Researchers at the 247th National Meeting & Exposition of the American Chemical Society, the world's largest scientific society, presented these commercial possibilities and a unique vision for green energy.

A battery that 'breathes' could power next-gen electric vehicles
Sales of electric vehicles nearly doubled in 2013, but most won't take you farther than 100 miles on one charge. To boost their range toward a tantalizing 300 miles or more, researchers are reporting progress on a "breathing" battery that has the potential to one day replace the lithium-ion technology of today's EVs. They presented their work at the 247th National Meeting & Exposition of the American Chemical Society, the world's largest scientific society.
