Triboelectricity is electrical energy that occurs when two objects interact causing electrons from one to jump to the other. The amount of electric charge is usually quite small, yet measurable. But what if we could harvest the collective amount of energy produced from triboelectricity to help power devices, or even entire homes and towns? A number of researchers are tackling the challenge and coming up with some innovative power generating solutions.
