Gizmodo: Tiny Generators Charge Up From Random Vibrations In the Air

Yet another minor breakthrough in the field of energy, imagine being able to power things (ok, small things) simply through the vibrations of everyday life - that is what the University of Michigan folks have dreamed up.

Technology - including bio and nano are changing the world and we are on the verge of a new "Industrial Revolution" for medical treatments and energy consumption. The world we live in fifty years from now will be difficult to recognize.

Globally we face great headwinds and severe financial issues that are not being worked out in a rational way, but none of this will stop (though it could greatly slow it down) march of technology and how it will change how we work, consume and live.
