One such technology is graphene transistors , which are the fastest in the world, from IBM. But, back to Power Felt…. The Technology: Power Felt Power Felt is a thermoelectric material, meaning that it uses a temperature difference between both of its sides to generate electricity. Thermoelectric materials also generate heat when supplied with electricity. Thermoelectric devices are usually rigid, brittle (although flexible versio...
