Electric Eel-Inspired Device Reaches 110 Volts

Electric Eel-Inspired Device Reaches 110 Volts: This photo depicts the printed, high voltage implementation of the artificial electric organ. A 3-D bioprinter was used to deposit arrays of gel precursor droplets onto plastic substrates, which were then cured with a UV light to convert them into solid gels. Alternating high-salinity and low-salinity gels (red and blue gels, respectively) were printed onto one substrate, and alternating cation-selective and anion-selective gels (green and yellow gels, respectively) were printed onto a second substrate. When overlaid, these gels connect to form a conductive pathway of 612 tetrameric gel cells that can be used to generate up to 110 volts.

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- In an effort to create a power source for future implantable technologies, a team led by Michael Mayer from the University of Fribourg, along with researchers from the University of Michigan and UC San Diego, developed an electric eel-inspired device that produced 110 volts from gels filled

Energy Labeling Protocols for External Power Supplies Will Keep Getting Tougher and Reaching Further

Figure 1. Authorities worldwide have adopted EPS energy-labeling protocols, and introduced stricter targets with each subsequent revision.

Recent delays in the introduction of mandatory energy-performance standards should not be interpreted as a slackening in the pace of regulatory change. Energy-performance standards for high-tech products can become more effective in helping protect the planet by being more broadly adopted worldwide
