Harvest Motion, Eliminate Batteries | Nima Tolou | TEDxDelftSalon

By 2020 approximately 20 billion low-powered devices will be in use, requiring an amount of batteries which could fill up several Olympic stadiums. What if there was a way to harvest and store kinetic energy, and send it to the device when required? Dr. Nima Tolou believes he has the answer.

Nima received his PhD in 2012, which he focused on micro-electro-mechanical systems. He has written several papers on MEMS, is an Intra-European Fellow at the Optical and Semiconductor Group at Imperial College London, and works as an Assistant Professor at Delft University of Technology’s Department of Precision and Microsystems Engineering.
