A startup in Corvallis, Oregon, has developed a small chip that can turn body heat into electric energy

It’s True! What once was  Science Fiction or Fantasy have now become true! Perpetua Power Source Technologies, Inc has made  a unique thermo-electric energy device integrated into wearable form such as wristbands or clothing. It’s a small TEGwear™  chip  that can convert body heat  into electric energy via a transducer or a thermo-electric generator, using the same technology used in solar panels.

FastCompany reports:

The company will demo the device on a new Swatch Touch watch at the annual Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas this month.   The result: a single, square-inch TEGwear chip generates enough power (up to 3 volts) to power anything from the accelerometer in your pedometer to the wireless headset for your smartphone. It’s also partnered with several private companies to develop body-powered smartphone accessories (like headsets), health-monitoring devices (such as wearable heart-rate monitors), and military applications (like monitoring a soldier’s vital signs and location while on a combat mission).
