Jacket Powers Gadgets With Your Hot Body

Illustration for article titled Jacket Powers Gadgets With Your Hot Body

You know how in the Matrix humans were grown in farms to harvest bodies to power machines? The kids at Berkeley Lab (Giz trivia: Chen's a Berkeley grad) are making a jacket that does the same thing, but it powers gadgets like laptops and cellphones instead of futile resistance to Keanu Reeves. Basically they're going to interlace thermo-electric silicon nanowires with the fabric, and they'll transform excess hotness into energy. Send these to Adam Frucci, and our energy problems are over.

I got a fever, and the only prescription... is more cowbell!!!

(except perhaps maybe I will pass on cowbell as my fever is helping power my laptop and cellphone in a most opportune fashion...)
