Fujitsu Develops Energy-Harvesting Device from Heat and Light

Fujitsu announced that it has developed a single device that can generate electricity from either heat or light. Why the big deal about this news? Because back in the day, you need to put together two devices to generate energy from these sources.

Additionally, the company says that the new device do not require wiring or battery replacements, which saves money and provides an inexpensive solution to energy supply. The photo shows a prototype device made on a flexible substrate.

Fujitsu says it is working on improving the technology before it can be brought to the commercial market by around 2015.
