The PowerWatch 2 runs entirely on its wearer’s body heat and solar energy

A future where you never have to charge your devices is closer than you’d think. Matrix’s PowerWatch 2 doesn’t come with a charging dock like most traditional smartwatches… that’s only because you, the wearer, are the charging dock! PowerWatch 2 relies on Matrix’s state-of-the-art thermoelectricity harvesting technology that captures body heat (a form of wasted energy) and uses that very heat to power the watch. Since every human’s body produces different amounts of heat based on genetic makeu...

Last month, the U.S. Army asked private companies for ideas about how to improve its planned semi-autonomous, AI-driven targeting system for tanks.
