CHANGWON, Oct. 8 (Korea Bizwire)The Korea Electrotechnology Research Institute (KERI) has developed a new technology that enables wearable electronic devices to produce and supply electricity for themselves by acting as their own power sources.

The state-run institute announced on Thursday the development of an integrated technology comprised of a self-charging nano generator that produces electricity using frictional force generated by things like clothes, and micro super-capacitor power supply that stores and supplies the electricity to wearable electronic devices.

Based on its history of nano fusion technology development, the KERI adopted the method of integrating single-wall carbon nanotubes, which have excellent electrical conductivity, with…
