Battery Free Phone :
Imagine if you could use your phones without worrying to charge it. Researchers from University of Washington have created a prototype cell phone which runs without battery. This little device is a little more than a circuit board and runs on just 3.5 micro watts power. It uses a solar cell thats roughly a size of a small rice grain that draws ambient power from surrounding light and radio signals, produced by a special base station that is located about 50 feet away. It can’t send and receive audio at the same time, so a user must press a specific button to speak or listen. But researchers plan to improve the prototype to add features like screen and other features.
