ASME is another group thinking outside the box and generating electricity in textiles. They have manufactured a textile using two fabrics generating energy from the sun and mechanical motion. Simple daily motions like walking or biking or even the wind blowing, can provide enough energy to charge a cell phone or power an electronic watch. Think of the things this textile can do. Talk about power dressing! WOW!

These guys at ASME, The American Society of Mechanical Engineers, are awesome. Their mission statement says “To serve diverse global communities by advancing, disseminating and applying engineering knowledge for improving the quality of life; and communicating the excitement of engineering”. Keep up the good work!
