A new technology has been invented that will allow you to charge your gadgets with T-Shirt, according to a report. A smarty-pants pair at the University of South Carolina stitched together a way, by Two engineers, to make your cotton top work for you.
To get it up acting, starting with a T-shirt from a local discount store, Li’s team from University soaked it in a solution of fluoride, dried it and baked it in an oxygen-deprived oven at high temperature. They found out that that the cotton fibers had turned into activated carbon — which is essentially a capacitor — that could charge phones, tablets and other devices.
Their method for making the fabric capacitor is inexpensive and doesn’t use environmentally harmful chemicals, Li said (one of the engineers who worked on the shirt).
Li and Bao (another engineer) published their research in the June 26 issue of the journal Advanced Materials.
