Samsung testing energy-scavenging nanopiezo touch screen prototypes

By / May 13, 2010

A computer touch screen that powers itself? It may only be five years until your iPad has this. Technology Review reports that Samsung and Sungkyunkwan University (Korea) have teamed up to develop an energy-scavenging touchscreen piezoelectric system that uses nanorods sandwiched between pieces of plastic film  coated with a graphene electrode layer to create a…
