Charge a laptop by typing on It

A team of scientists at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in California, USA, have genetically engineered a harmless virus to convert mechanical energy into electrical energy. The breakthrough-technology essentially means that an electronic device could be charged via everyday actions such as typing, walking, or closing a door.
The scientists used the M13 virus- a harmless virus common in science labs. They found that the M13 virus was piezoelectric, meaning that it could create an electrical charge when it experienced mechanical stress (aka an act like typing). By genetically engineering the virus, the scientists were able to boost its charge and were able to create a ‘virus-powered LCD

A little different from the Piezoelectric device developed by RMIT a few years back

Rooftoppers Secretly Climb 650-Meter-High Crane in Shanghai by Vitaly Raskalov and Vadim Makhorov | via

Russian photographers and adrenaline junkies Vitaly Raskalov and Vadim Makhorov, who are no strangers to traveling to the world’s towering skyscrapers and climbing them with absolutely no safety gear, have recently conquered the second tallest building in the world. The daredevil duo managed to gain access to China’s Shanghai Tower earlier this month, ascend the 650-meter-high structure, and take some incredible photos from their unique viewpoints.

As if rooftopping/skywalking and photographing from such great heights wasn’t enough, the two ventured off with the added pressure of sneaking into the construction site to scale the unfinished building while the city was busy celebrating the Chinese New Year. Raskalov says, “Aware of the strict Chinese law, we prepared carefully and picked an appropriate date, the Chinese New Year day. At that time the security was less watchful, workers were on vacations, and cranes did not work. We got to the crane at around midnight. It took us almost two hours to get on the 120th floor by foot. And also, we spend almost 18 hours on top of the building, sleeping and waiting for better weather.”

Watch their heart-pounding adventure in the video, below.
