An engineer from Tripura has built up an innovation to produce power from wet garments that can be utilized to charge cell phones or to utilize clinical symptomatic gadgets.
This advancement won him the Gandhian Young Technological Innovation ( GYTI) grant this November; it was introduced by Union Health Minister Dr Harsh Vardhan.
Shankha Subhra Das, from Khedabari in Sepahijala area of Tripura, utilized a material slice to a specific size and embedded it in a plastic straw to fix in a half-filled water compartment. He appended copper terminals to the two finishes of the straw. "The water is shipped to the top after some time, because of narrow activity, and around 700 millivolts are enrolled in the voltmeter," Das said.
